No More Mosquito Spraying

 

 

Midsummer is the time when towns and cities across America spray for deadly mosquitoes.

Besides West Nile Virus, mosquito bites can cause equine encephalitis, dengue fever and even ulcers.

But one city, Framingham, Massachusetts, has decided to halt mosquito spraying for a short time. They are deliberating the toxic effects of chemicals used to kill mosquitoes.

Perhaps more localities should be looking into chemicals that are less toxic to humans and pets while still keeping the mosquito populations under control.

There are organic methods that can be used to kill mosquitoes and their larvae.
