Animals and humans suffer from spraying

In regard to the July 30 letter from Pat Breeding titled “Forewarning needed before aerial spraying,” there are cattle in pastures along fields being sprayed.

People drive by fields also being sprayed. I have done this, also, and could feel it in my lungs, and it went away in a couple of days. The sprays do away with all bugs, good and destructive. Ladybugs also could be used to control insect populations.

No one tells Monsanto or John Deere they are doing some harmful things.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
