I once bought an attachment muffler for my lawnmower with a tube you pour the special insecticide into the muffler and it vaporizes.
They are legitimate. The best control method is to pour a little oil in the stagnant water They use special oils which disperse to a very fine
Here is a quote from a Florida web site.
In the past the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District used thermal fogging to apply adulticides. The pesticide was diluted with diesel oil and passed
through the engine of the plane or the blower in the back of the truck. This produced a thick cloud of smoke that was easily seen. It also produced a
certain level of pollution due to the burning of the oil. Now the district uses ultralow volume or ULV applications. A very small amount of pesticide
is applied in droplets about the diameter of a human hair. ULV allows mosquito control to use less pesticide to achieve the same results, while
eliminating pollution due to use of the diesel oil carrier.
Yet polluting the air with a chemical that has mild nervegas activity.
Add thatn to the already idiotic amounts of other pollutants and you have a bad health cocktail.
Why humans are so stupid to not see the downside to their ever so slight ups is a mistery to me. Id rather evolve to be able to stand muskitoes, than
to have to breathe nervegas against bugs.
We humans have always tried to eliminate parts of nature, only because we are too LAZY to adapt or to live elsewhere. In the Rainforests, the
inhabitants have millions of stinging insects that assail them, and still they have adapted to this by changing their diet (or rather by eating the
local diet) so they are able to stand the assault by bugs.
Who of the two is smarter and better equipped to survive eh? We who need chemicals and machines or they?
Not much thinking time necessary, I guess.
Its the Amazonians who win with ease.
We westerners have to poison everything and destroy any species that could be of danger to us. We are a cancer to the earth if we stick to this
We will soon be the victim of our poisonous behaviour and possibly we will be eradicated by the forces of nature; if we do not destroy nature
altogether...and ourselves in the process...
