those that are banned are sold under fake labels ! Across the world

I was in the pest control industry for many years.
Hawaii is famous for all kinds of pests.\
Back in 1980's, there was a chemical called "chlordane" (something like DDT), that was widely used for termites and even ag use.
It was very popular in the industry because it was cheap and would last forever left untouched.
When it was banned, many companies turned to the next cheapest alternative.
This was a "organo-phosphate", which is a "nerve toxin" (much like mustard-gas" in WWI).
It was dirty and smelled.
I decided to search for a better solution and found a chemical called "permethrins".
It is a synthetic form of a chemical found in plants.
Made a lot of money being the first to introduce this.

Old chemicals are a thing of the past.
Makes no sense to use something more toxic, when there is safer chemicals for the same price.

Take countries like Argentina and Brazil they use now over 180 millions of gallon of pesticides per  ...

On the flip side...
I read China was dealing with the locust problems, using chickens.
They would truck in the chickens and let them loose in the fields.
Chickens would devour the insects, almost to their own body weight.
Then the farmers have fat chickens for market.

The ONLY reason over use chemicals exist, is for capitalist profits.
An educated public would deal with problems differently.

I disagree. In rural China, it is a huge problem that the farmers are doping their pigs (often having just a couple of them) full of steroids. It has nothing to do with capitalism, but much to do with keeping the people fed. They'd do the same to their fields if it was as cost-efficient.

These are farmers who barely produce enough for their own good, much less to the market.

The reason they use such chemicals is for economic gain.

Only 2 countries in the world does this.....
