  1. Nothing I like better than to have chemicals raining down on me that are only killing adult mosquitoes, adulticide if you will. I have a pond in my backyard and the number of mosquitoes has actually decreased instead on increasing.

    Aerial spraying for mosquitoes is a waste of money and petrochemicals. The article doesn’t even tell us what chemicals will be raining down on us. I simply do not condone excessive use of chemicals so a few people will have less mosquito bites for a few days after the spraying and before the larvae hatch. I can easily provide anyone with references of the harm this does; have not posted here since it doesn’t seem to matter to the town council to use science in this decision.

    Thanks goodness I have a workshop out of town all next week so I can miss the uncontrolled use of chemicals that do affects humans, other insects besides mosquitoes and are not really handling the mosquito “problem.”
