We get a free copy of the Journal every week because it is paid for by advertisers. So, when I see an ad for Bayer Crop Science Complete Insect Killer for a mere $8.99 at Ace "The Helpful Place" (June 13), I am both saddened and horrified. Bayer's Complete Insect Killer's main ingredient is Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid which has been implicated in bee death. How is this helpful? Good people put trust in your advertisers and want to support them because they enable the North Coast Journal to exist. We need that trust to be upheld. Therefore, I would like to suggest that the Journal review advertising guidelines and consider refusing advertising for toxic and dangerous products which harm us all. What do you think?
