DEBATE GOES ON
In response to the March debate, “Is procrastinating a good thing?”
NO The best things obtained in life have been
made by being goal-driven, and not by procrastinating and waiting.
—Génesis González, facebook.com/Costco
YES “Strategic procrastination” is the willful
knowledge that waiting will yield greater results.
This methodology makes us consciously evaluate
what we do and when we do it.

Be nice to bees
I wanted to point out the irony in your side-by-side buyer’s picks in the March issue: insecticide and the Swiss Alps bee house. There is
evidence suggesting a link between insecticides
and bee colony collapse disorder. There are natural ways to keep undesirable insects under
control. For example, planting flowers that
attract parasitic wasps can keep insect pests
—Enoch Dames, San Leandro, California
A major factor in the worldwide decline of
our vital pollinators, including mason bees, is
the increased use of indiscriminate, broad-spectrum insecticides and herbicides.
—Amber Rowland, Austin, Texas
Ortho responds: We believe that every garden and
yard can help to provide habitat for bees and other
native pollinators. Ortho is working to help consumers protect pollinators by ending the use of
chemistry that’s been linked to a decline in pollinator health, and through consumer education in collaboration with pollinator protection groups about
responsible pest control in areas where pollinators
might be found. In the case of Ortho Home Defense
for Lawns, it is unlikely the granular formula, if
used according to label directions, will cause harm

All ads indicate whether a
product is available in the
warehouse, on Costco.com
or both. Products are scheduled to be available during
The Connection’s month of
publication and are noted as
in warehouse “early in month”
(1st to 10th), “mid-month”
(11th to 21st) or “late in month”
(22nd to 31st). Shop early in the
month for the best selection of
seasonal items. Costco.com
carries many of the products
available at the warehouses,
and offers thousands of additional items, including line
extensions and supplemental
products. Prices are usually not
listed because they have not
been finalized at the time of
printing and may vary from one
part of the country to another
due to shipping costs. We hope
members know to check Costco
first when comparison shopping.
To keep prices low, Costco does
not offer a telephone service
allowing members to call in for
prices or product availability.
