So basically... a chemical designed to kill bugs has killed bugs, and this is outrageous. Do I have that right?
Not when said chemical is killing off bees, bumblebees, and all insects that serve as major pollinators for our crops.

Come Lord Jesus and save us from ourselves.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
