California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) covers up CheckMate pesticide killing 650 birds after aerial spray in 2007. CDFG lab report
Disinfo. 1) CDFG "compared feather extracts to CheckMate -F", a product that does not exist, and has determined that the birds did not die from "CheckMate -F", again, a product that does not exist.
Disinfo 2) CDFG "analyzed samples for constituents of CheckMate -F and found none of the ACTIVE ingrediants". What about testing for the inert ingrediants like Tricaprylyl Methyl Ammonium Chloride? "According to SIMoN (Sanctuary Integrated Monitoring Network for the Monterey Bay) surfactants act like a detergent to reduce the waterproofing ability of feathers."
