No, Orem has had an infestation of Japanese beetles for a few years.
The only way to get rid of them was via aerial spraying. This spray
was not save for consumption however so that city informed residents
that they should not grow a garden. What's ridiculous about the man in
the story's position is that if the city didn't spray, he wouldn't
have a garden either because the beetles were eating it all. So, he
had a choice, go without a garden for a few years while the city
exterminates or go without one forever as the beetle population
