So upset that thanks to mass hysteria my town has jumped on the bandwagon of spraying insecticide by plane. We are spending the nights that this is taking place away from the area. In theory they say that the pesticide breaks down in sunlight. Other than wearing no shoes inside the house what can we do? We turned ac off - We did put everything inside the garage - will water wash the playground structure - did take the seats and things that the kids actually touch out and out them in the garage. Should I do anything else? Any vitamins or other measures?

So upset thst the government can actually force this unto us - what's next mandatory flu vaccines?

UGH!  That stinks.  I keep waiting to see if my community is going to do it.  It sounds like you are taking great precautions regarding this.  I know that greens can help with detox, so maybe adding a bunch of those to your diet might help?
