This photograph was taken of a storage shed located in the Ag field adjacent WCMS. The container of Eradicane shown was located in this shed. As per Ann Kam Dept. of Ag pesticide misuse inspector,"just because it's stored in a shed in the field doesn't mean it was sprayed on the field." D.O.A. inspectors took their samples over a week after confirmed Eradicane product application on field #802.
