    That is because once DDT was withdrawn more bugs were actually IN the vegetables. During the DDT era, Veggies were frequently bug-free and inspection was not so important

    It is like inspecting eggs in the era of candled eggs. Very few eggs have serious blood problems

    I was saying that in the pre-DDT era, the bigt bugs ate the small bugs, and there were fewer bugs one might miss. Inspection was less important. Today, we have insecticides aimed at killing bugs that might scare off the general consumer. Which means they miss bugs the typical American might not notice, but are big enough to pose kashrus issues.

    Yes, during DDT use, everything was killed before they could climb onto my lettuce.
