Removing Pesticides from Bonanza

image of bee on yellow flowers

Hello, Bonanzlers! Today, we’d like to discuss an important update to our prohibited items policy: pesticides. We have recently updated our policy to prohibit ALL pesticides and insecticides. This change was made to ensure that products sold on Bonanza are safe for the environment and the purchaser.

What is a pesticide? Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant.

We trust that everyone on Bonanza is here to make an honest living. However, even the best intentions can go wrong, and people sometimes break the rules, knowingly or unknowingly. For these situations, we have a dedicated Loss / Risk Prevention (LRP) team that enforces our prohibited items rules.

Bonanza's LRP Team utilizes several tools to help proactively remove and prevent prohibited items. They notify sellers of claims or items that have been removed.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Despite our best efforts, it’s impossible for us to catch 100% of violations on our own. That’s why, in addition to our LRP team, we also have the Bonanza community helping us when possible. Anyone can report items or users for violating the terms and conditions (if you see something, say something!). Together we can ensure that products sold on Bonanza are safe for the environment and the purchaser.

    What crap. Cayenne pepper & vinegar repels insects and you can eat those. What a sad world we live in now. We have to protect the really stupid people from doing really stupid things like eat mouse/rat bait.

    Good to see that Bonanza has continued to carry the mantle after my semi-retirement.

    I am sure you have scientific reason for this or is it just some liberal think tank reasoning?

    I sell a few roach motels on other sites if I happen to get them in a gaylord pallet from time to time. Nice to know when I don’t see them auto-uploaded to my Bonanza store. Thank you.

    Not that I am selling any, but how do organic items fall in this group? Safer’s soap, Bacillus thuringiensis, neem oil, Diatomaceous Earth, etc. I used to certify organic farms and grow organically so I am curious.

    “..all pesticides and insecticides” shows a lack of science in the author’s piece. All insecticides are pesticides, as are herbicides.
