Decision to poison roadsides is shocking beyond belief

Sir, I could not believe my eyes when I read about Kerry County Council's decision to use chemicals to control our hedgerows instead of doing so by mechanical means (Kerryman, July 17). Indeed I had to recheck the date to make sure it wasn't April 1. Are these people for real? Have we not done enough damage to our environment already without poisoning what's left of it? This is an ill thought-out, ignorant decision that would be devastating for our wildlife and particularly so for our bee population whose numbers have already been devastated by the widespread use of pesticides.
