I’m sure this is contributing to Lake O‘s problems as well.
And yes, I’ve seen it on Kissimmee first hand.

    Thank you for posting this.  And a big thanks to K-nep Environment for making the video.  Thank you for taking the time and effort to raise awareness.  Utterly unbelievable and such a travesty.  I hope news outlets find this and make the masses aware.  This is unacceptable.

    Spangler, there has been a lot of naysayers about the spraying.  Those of us that fish these and other bodies of waters have seen it first hand  but never were able to document it like it has been now. Hopefully this video will be a step in the right direction of stopping this destructive practice.

    We need more of it!  This is insane!!!! Personally, I don't agree with chem only treatment of invasives but this is beyond stupid.  The very nature of gov't contracts lends itself to this kind of practice.  We def need outside interest to hold them accountable.  I've never been quite so outraged as watching that video.. ughhh

    A word of advice to K-Nep Environment or anyone else so motivated to document and make available these atrocities to our environment.  Make videos no longer than maybe 2 min.  You can tell from the response here and the relatively low number of views of that video so far, the masses have short attention spans. 
    We def need people getting the message. 
    Shoot, just make a 20 sec video of them spraying birds and post that to FB..
    Just in addition to the great reporting that you've already put together.  I know there' a lot to say.

    I agree, for the short-minded social crowd, short is better.  But, for getting complicated information out there, with below the fold details, a longer video is necessary at times.  If possible a short version and long might work....
