Pyrethrin is a mainstay of organic gardeners.  It has been thought to be
natural and safe for many, many years.

Now we find out differently.  But there is no surprise here, is there?
What was lacking all along was research, which should have been done long

I am sure it is very frustrating to farmers.  So many chemicals, natural
and synthetic, are used and then banned.  Insects develop resistance, just
like microbes.

Maybe we can move towards testing them before ever releasing them, though
how you could get that through a human research committee is problematical
if not impossible.
