As you probably know, there are many problems with pet stores that sell animals, but now there’s a new kid on the block: The Home Depot! The chain has started selling ladybugs and praying mantises by the bag as a method of deterring other insect species from taking over home gardens. Imagine a gardener going to the check-out line with a few bulbs, a watering can, and … a bag of praying mantises!
Think this out, y’all: Insects plus confinement to a bag plus scorching summer heat equals a ton of bugs dying slowly from the heat. And hey, even if that logic is over your head, surely you agree that buying a heaping sack of bugs is a pretty messed-up idea, right?
Please go check out our action alert and shoot the folks at The Home Depot a brief message explaining the obvious.
