The Dangers of Pesticide Exposure in Hotels

 

Pesticide exposure is typically a concern for farm workers who apply them, but sometimes unsuspecting people are put through life-threatening experiences by coming into contact with the toxic chemicals.

 

A couple of months ago, an entire Delaware family became violently ill while vacationing in the U.S. Virgil Islands. Steve Esmond, his wife, and their two sons – one 16 years old and one just over 14 years of age – were enjoying their stay at a luxurious villa located in St. John, when Esmond was found unconscious in their hotel room.

The first generation included highly toxic and pretty much ineffective compounds, such as arsenic and hydrogen cyanide. The following generations included largely synthetic organic compounds, such as the infamous DDT, which at the time were deemed miraculous for their broad spectrum, high toxicity, and the fact that they weren’t water soluble, so rain couldn’t wash them off.

 

At the moment, Canadians use millions of pounds of pesticides every year to combat invaders in agricultural crops, gardens, business properties, schools, hospitals, public transportation, and parks. What’s fundamentally wrong about pesticide use is that it doesn’t solve pest problems – it only eliminates existing infestations, leaving the conditions that led to a pest infestation in the first place unchanged. In other words, they address the symptoms, and not the cause, of the problem.
