Most "spraying" is done with very low toxicity pesticides. How do you know that is what made you sick? And are you even aware of which kind they are using? Without know things like that, I don't see how you could come to that conclusion.
What insecticide is sprayed at night by the Northwest Mosquito Abatement District trucks? Anvil 10 + 10, Zenivex E20
Short-term exposures to very high levels of pyrethroid pesticides similar to sumithrin can affect the nervous system, causing such effects as loss of coordination, tremors or tingling and numbness in areas of skin contact. Short-term exposure to high levels of petroleum solvents can cause irritation of the eye, skin, nose, throat or lung. Vomiting or central nervous system depression may occur if very high levels of petroleum solvents are ingested. There are no studies examin-ing whether the use of Anvil to control mosquitoes has caused any long-term health effects in humans.

So how about next year, you just go on vacation for a few days before they spray?
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.
You will get better. You won't die. And you do not have a legal case. Sorry.

Boncho, I still think I would prefer not to be sprayed with a pesticide or around my place of residence at all, regardless of the amount of toxic components.
