[NAFEX] You Think You Got Pest Problems?

I can deal with someone pulling the wings off of flies, having poisoned plenty myself.  I can deal with folks who quickly kill animals and eat them--I am not a vegetarian.  But this guy is a cruel, greedy bastard--like the farmers around here who stuff 10,000 hogs into a small barn like wall-to-wall pork carpeting. Like logging companies who strip-mine vast mountainsides of trees:  it's cheaper that way, you know, it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to timber selectively or sustainably.  Oooo, it costs me so much money to treat waste water before dumping it!  Why do I have to pay minimum wage?  Maybe slaves are cheaper in the long run.  Since this guy has to export to Europe or the US to survive, I'd say protests and boycotts of any fruit distributor who EVER buys another apple from this guy again would be the free market solution.  Starlings would be the least of his economic nightmares.  Spread the word:-)

  Here is a fellow with real pest problems.  Claims they cost him $300,000 last year in lost crops.


  Massive explosion leaves thousands of birds dead 

  An orchardist who regularly mounts attacks on roosting starlings has allegedly left thousands of birds dead and dying after commissioning a bird bomb for his latest effort. 





  Having been frustrated by pests myself it is hard to decide where I stand on his actions.
