After months of increasing complaints and defiance by local city leaders, the state Department of Food and Agriculture has agreed not to aerially spray sex hormones over cities in order to wipe out the dreaded light brown apple moth. Now, officials declared yesterday, they'll introduce neutered moths into the local populations in hopes of throwing off the reproduction cycle. Cities such as Berkeley, Richmond, and Oakland had all vowed to opposed the sex hormone carpet-bombing, but we were really looking forward to the sight of moths dry-humping light posts all around the East Bay. Now we'll have to get our sick kicks some other way.
