I put in 3 hours in my yard today (clearing out the summer vegetable garden, weedeating, etc.). I held off going out until 9:00 AM, not one mosquito sighted. I also noticed some hummingbirds I haven't seen before visiting our feeders. That is usually a sign of the beginning of their southern migration. Spraying can't be good for them.
I'm very confused by an article in today's Dallas Morning News, page 1A. Virus risk to linger , CDC official expects "many more cases" through September. This despite aerial spraying? My understanding of the article (possibly fuzzy) is, regardless of spraying we still must take all precautions, and there will STILL be new cases of West Nile Virus.
I know our elected officials have, as their primary responsibility, the safety of all of us, but leaping into this with only a few days consideration is precipitous.
