MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) — Dozens of protesters lined up in front of Miami Beach city hall as local leaders talked about a chemical causing debate in the Zika fight – Naled.
Mosquito control crews were set to spray Naled over Miami Beach, just like they did in Wynwood, starting Thursday but growing concerns from residents and local leaders prompted a delay.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez issued a statement on the matter, saying in part:
“During today’s meeting with the City of Miami Beach, City leadership, and residents asked for more time to prepare and inform Miami Beach residents and visitors about our aerial spraying plan. In consultation with health experts and the City of Miami Beach, we have agreed to delay aerial spraying with adulticide by one day. We will begin spraying on Friday around 5:00 a.m, weather permitting, and will spray this Sunday, and the following two weekends. This schedule will minimize disruption to our school children and families.”….. [read more]
lhwm notes: “This chemical was ran out of Puerto Rico. It’s been banned in 22 European Unions and it’s the wrong message to be sent especially when you’re dealing with tourism here in Miami,” said business owner Chad Allison.”
This has information on Nalded – “Beneficial Organisms It is toxic to bees and stoneflies (#EXTOXNET, 1996).”
What are they doing? They are not thinking about the safety of anyone. This CHEMICAL spray will end up in our water, food, and in us. They are pushing and forcing something that could be handled very differently.
