Chemical Drift – aka Rob Sharkey’s All Time Favorite Subject

{A must listen if you live near a farm and have any prejudice or concerns about chemicals infiltrating your garden or property.}

In this episode, Rob and Carrie are chatting about chemicals.

  • Where they go when farmers use them?
  • Are they more dangerous than bug spray?
  • How expensive are they?
  • How are they applied?
  • What should you do if you get “chemical drift” in your yard?
  • What to do if the pesticide gets onto your children’s skin or onto your pets.


  • Farmers: What chemicals do you use? Have you ever drifted a pesticide?
  • Consumers: What is your biggest concern about farmer chemicals invading your personal space?
