But I think it's great that you are going to present them with an alternative, especially to the city council. I'm reading through your links and I am appalled that they are going to be spraying that stuff- probably with no information to the public about what it is, etc, at all.
No, absolutely no info for the public. Even worse is the fact that aerial sprays are deemed, by the CDC
, to be the least effective measures of pest control. Not only does it cause resistance to build in the mosquito population, it kills the organisms/animals that normally eat the mosquitoes so the problem will be worse next year and if the weather doesn't permit them to spray they will have wasted almost 10,000 tax payer dollars. I'm seriously not impressed. If I were pregnant I would be very

Guess what, the 78% of Trumpet that is Naled breaks down rapidly into DDVP. I guess that is how they get away with selling the stuff when they know of the very dangerous effects of the DDVP portion. Must think people are morons.
