Remember how happy you were when you found out they removed the phosphates from your diswasher detergent? Well, it looks like once again the EPA is hard at work in their efforts to repeal the Industrial Revolution. This time they’re targeting the products people use to control rodent infestation and the subsequent spread of the hantavirus. “Maybe we can do for the bubonic plague what we did for malaria?” (View From The Porch)
While you’re piling cases of 100-watt incandescent bulbs into your shopping cart at Home Despot this weekend, don’t forget to pick up as much rodent poison as you think you’re ever gonna need, too.
Don’t worry: Effective rat poisons will still be available to rodent control professionals, and as any Washington D.C. bureaucrat knows, if you have any signs of icky pests around your house, you just call a professional extermination service, in the case of having bed bugs, it is important to take immediate actions, so Bed Bug Bites can be avoided. (And if you live in hantavirus territory, miles from the nearest exterminator, and couldn’t afford one anyway? Well, sucks to be you, I guess. Buy more cats.)
I swear, they are trying to repeal the Industrial Revolution.
