I'm not sure about your neck of the woods, but here we contact our County Extension office when we have such questions. I've always found them very informative.
One time all the Pecan trees on our property started dropping large limbs. I thought I had some sort of insect. I called them and someone actually came out to my home. Turns out the type of Pecan trees I have "self prune" every so many years.
It's important to note that had my trees had an insect or disease, I would have been required to treat them or destroy the trees to protect other trees. Just FYI.

|Bridget||Thanks for the chart. Good info.|

|Bridget||No, he doesn't mean YOU have to tell me, but perhaps the folks who sell the stuff might have to IF ASKED. Like for instance, I work at a non-profit and we have to show tax returns, which include how much money our senior officers make, to ANYONE who walks in off the street and asks to see them. It is a matter of public knowledge. I think he means that chemicals being used in the environment are also a matter of public right-to-know.|

BTW, your food is already sprayed with glyosphate and they are planning in spraying it with 2,4 D [GMO food products]

Tell him to be careful!
My husband said to call the lawn service company, give them my neighbor's address and ask to see the MSDS sheets on whatever they spray her lawn with. He doesn't think they are allowed to refuse.

I think I will do that. I didn't know the term "widow maker" but yes we have them, but two of the squirrels were in knots in the trees, presumably their homes.
Apsel, you are just funny.

|Ellimaybel||I absolutely agree 2000% it's the chemicals. You may want to consider documenting all of these events and seeing if there is an agency in your county (such as board of health) that can look into it.|
