How to get rid of grasshoppers
- by admin
The grasshopping lawn mowers are a favorite of kids, and the grasshoopers are so common in lawns that they have their own lawn service company, and they have become the target of a growing number of lawsuits.
So far, there are nearly 3,000 lawsuits, and a number of state legislatures are considering bills to limit the use of lawn mowing equipment.
But grasshooping is so common that most people have never heard of it.
That’s not surprising.
Most people are unaware of the dangers of lawning, said Gary Kapp, an expert on lawns and a professor at Indiana University.
They’re not aware that the equipment can spread diseases, can be used for purposes that are illegal, can cause injuries, can damage property and can even cause injuries to people.
Kapp has seen it all.
When he was a child, his father used to mow his grass to keep the dirt off the ground, Kapp said.
But when he was growing up, his dad stopped mowing because the grass didn’t grow back the way he wanted it to.
Kapps’ dad was a mechanic.
He didn’t have a lawn service license, but he had a few employees who had one and were required to get a license.
But it wasn’t until a young boy and a young girl came to his house that Kapp realized there was something he needed to do to protect his property.
The boy was an avid lawnmower user, and when he grew up he began to play with the equipment.
Kipp said he remembers the boy playing with the lawn mowed blades in his backyard and trying to use them to cut weeds and plant trees.
But that was only when he got the boy and girl out to the backyard to try and get a cut.
The parents of the boy had the boy out of the house and he ran off, Kipp recalled.
The girl’s parents were in a wheelchair, and she went home and was scared and confused, Kapps said.
So Kapp asked his son to put the lawnmowers away.
KApps son was scared to do that, and he said, “I can’t go to the mowing business.”
The boy never got around to mowing again, and Kapp tried again.
The next year, KAPP went back to his yard and saw a sign that said lawn service is $2.50 a cut, Kattos said.
“It’s a lot of money,” Kapp recalled the boy telling him.
So he bought a lawn mow and installed it on his property in order to protect it.
“I told him, ‘You know, if I want to take this thing to the grave, I’ll buy a car, or a house, or whatever it takes,'” Kapp added.
The teen’s parents did not return phone calls seeking comment.
But Kapp did speak to the boy, and after he was arrested, Kettos said, he was charged with criminal trespassing.
Kettoms son was convicted and sentenced to six months in jail, and his son has since been released from jail.
The state of Indiana says the law is outdated, and its a violation of Kattols rights to a free and healthy environment.
Kattoses father, however, disagrees.
He said he wants to get the mowers back.
KAPP: “It was the first time I ever saw a child go out on a mowing machine and have any of the problems that I have,” Kattoes father said.
He added that he was never given any sort of instruction.
“They were just mowing the lawn and saying, ‘We’ll give you a mower.'”
The boy and his father have been fighting the charges against them ever since.
But they still want the mower back.
The two men are scheduled to have a hearing on May 12 in the Marion County Juvenile Court.
The judge has scheduled a hearing to consider a motion by the boy’s parents to have the charges thrown out.
The mower has been the subject of a number, dozen or so lawsuits, Katti said.
One of the lawsuits is being filed by a woman who claims that her husband and children were hurt when a lawnmowing machine was used in their front yard.
A representative for the city of Indianapolis, which has been named in one of the suits, declined to comment for this story.
A spokesperson for the Marion county attorney’s office said the office is reviewing the case.
But the court is expected to rule soon whether the charges can be tossed.
The city of Marion has been hit with at least seven lawsuits related to lawn mows.
Katti, the former lawn maver, said he has no regrets about what he did.
He believes that the law was intended to protect people, he said.
I thought the kids were doing the right thing and I was just following the law. Kitt
