Report # 37:


Pheromone Search of 942 Monterey County Lepidoptera Species Potentially Affected Non-Target Species / California LBAM Eradication Plan 10-06-07

Report # 36:

"Light Brown Apple Moth in California: Quarantine, Management, and Potential Impacts" - "LBAM is found throughout Australia but it does not survive well at high temperatures and is a more serious pest in cooler areas with mild summers. The pest performs best under cool conditions (mean annual temperature of approximately 56ºF) with moderate rainfall (approximately 29 inches) and moderate-high relative humidity (approximately 70%). Hot, dry conditions may reduce populations significantly."

Report # 05:

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."

Report # 04:


TOXICTY REPORT FOR OLR-F/LBAM-F

Report # 03:

The Toxicity of Checkmate® LBAM-F and Epiphyas postvittana Pheromone to Ceriodaphnia dubia and Fathead Minnow study shows two things.
1) Checkmate® LBAM-F when it pools up like after rain the high pheromone concentrations will cause 100 % mortality in the tested aquatic life.
2)Checkmate® LBAM-F "microcapsules ranged in size from approximately 10 microns to 190 microns". ALA and EPA agree that esposure to particles of this size and smaller have been linked to serious health ploblems like "increased hospitalization for asthma attacks...slowed lung function growth in children and teenagers" and many more health problems.
