Hi everyone. This is my 1st post here.
I'm posting because I put down Roundup in my backyard 2 weeks ago in a 10x10' area for a stone patio. Over the last 2 days I've noticed all the earthworms are coming out of the soil IN THE FRONT YARD 80-100' AWAY on a downslope and writhing and dying. The birds won't eat them.
My house has the only yard in the neighborhood that has dead worms all over the sidewalk and street.
I'm just sick about it. I haven't put anything down that would cause them to die besides Roundup, 100' away.
I swept them all up and they're in a bag.
Attempts to contact Monsanto gets me, "No it dosen't kill earthworms". Scott's the distributor says the same thing and "It's the eqivalent of salt", yea right.
What should I do with the dead worms? Send to Hugh Grant the CEO of Monsanto US? Scott's.
I've contacted a supervisor at Scott's, sent them an email with pics of all the dead worms on my sidewalk and street.
I contacted the EPA. They said there's nothing they can do unless I want to report myself for polluting the enviroment. My neighbors could file a report if they wanted I'm told.
I will post pics of all the worms I've swept up in the next day. I've got to get the word out further that Roundup is TOXIC to the enviroment.
When the amphibians die, that's not a good sign for our survival as well.
2 WEEKS FOR THE ROUNDUP TO GO 100' UNDER MY FOUNDATION TO THE FRONT YARD EFFECTIVELY STERILIZING IT.
ALSO KEEP IN MIND I USED UNDER THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT.
