The mosquitoes are doing well out here. The rain really got them going.
The county emergency management told us that there would be spraying in our county the next 3 nights. Wonder if it is connected with this deployment. Could they be flying this soon?
This is the first aerial spray I can remember here.
Malathion is one of the most widely used organophosphate insecticides in the United States and throughout the world. It is used to control pests of agricultural crops, ornamentals, greenhouses, livestock, stored grain, forests, buildings, households, and gardens. Industrial, commercial, and government applications constitute most of the annual U.S. usage. These uses include schools, hospitals, warehouses, eating establishments, food processing plants, and wide scale pest control or eradication programs.(1)
