If the county were to spray they should have done it in late June or early July, if public officials were truly wanting to prevent the problem.
I find it amazing that the personal responsibility and 'nanny state' folks aren't up in arms. This is easily prevented by using DEET. Just like the flu is easily prevented with a vaccine. As far as medical costs, the flu kills and hospitalizes orders of magnitude more people every single year.
Of course no one is asking the really important question. Will we be doing this next year? And the year after? The county is already planning a property tax increase, I'm pretty sure they don't have annual spraying at the cost of $1M or more a year in the budget.
Go buy a $3 bottle of DEET.
