Has been removed. I received an email as shown below:



Hi,

I work for the North Dakota Department of Agriculture in the Pesticide Division as the job title removed. Although there are legal and helpful comments on the topic of "how do you kill dandelions" there are a number of violations of North Dakota pesticide law for not following pesticide labels and making false recommendations.

I am asking you to delete that thread so that illegal use is not encouraged further. I will not look at prosecuting anyone who has posted currently but this needs to stop. Pesticides pose a risk to humans and the environment. Improper use of pesticides can lead to adverse health.

Thank you.

Too bad he was obviously too busy to clarify exactly what posts/methods were the illegal ones. Might have been helpful.

Seriously, Id like to see him get a search warrant for a website because someone recommended a HERBICIDE be used in a way not listed on the label, its almost laughable.

Hopefully Vollmer cares enough about his members to not just hand over private information without a court order.... ;:;badidea

Sad that you rolled over to that?! Wth volk er?!

so will you be cooperating with the game and fish when they 'fish' this sight for game violators?

Personally, I'd be cooperative when given the legal paperwork. Other than that piss on them! Put the damn dandelion thread back up! Jeez S

Be careful. He might be giving a heads up but his boss at Dept of Ag may want to bring down the hammer. Don't tip off his boss. A 30 second Google search should give you enough to confirm whether or not the guy is legit. If it doesn't seem right, (like the PESTICIDE reference) you should contact Dept of Ag.

The person is legit, and is who he says he is.

I pulled the thread down to protect the members that may have unknowingly posted something that they shouldn't have. Not to protect me.

Still investigating, just wanted to keep everyone in the loop.

Feel free to check the century code and administrative code.

NDCC 4-35-05:


  1. "Pesticide" means:
    1. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying,
      repelling, or mitigating any pest; and
    2. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator,
      defoliant, or desiccant.





You win this time, ass.
