I have asthma and am really worried about how the spraying will affect me and thousands of others with respiratory diseases. It also concerns me that this will endanger the wildlife at the Trinity River Audubon Center and the Dallas Arboretum.
Thanks. Thankfully, we won't get the aerial spraying. We were surprised to learn that spraying on our street had been
done July 7.
Please share & speak up - who needs more chemicals for our bodies to have to deal with!
Our protests didn't work. They're going ahead with it anyway. I called and emailed the major and reps in my district and let them hear me say NO. But, we'll just have to deal with the aftermath.
Dallas is a big place and there will be big volumes of this chemical sprayed. I have seen the effects of this chemical sprayed from a very expensive mosquito equipment installed at a residence. I have witnessed the passing of many bees. I wonder what else will pass for the greater good?
Stop fooling with mother nature.
From the Aqualuer 20-20 product MSDS sheet - one of the products the municipalities will be spraying: "Permethrin and piperonyl butoxide are highly toxic to fish and other aquatic organisms. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present."
Nellie Jenkins wrote: "If the spray is not harmful to humans as said on t.v., the families of those forcing this spray on the rest of us should simply take a drink of it to prove how nontoxic it is to all but the mosquitos. This spraying is a horrible, horrible thing to do."
Stupid panic because 47 Texans out of 26 million Texans have died.
This is a terrible use of our tax dollars! The spraying is not effective. Just ask people to take some personal responsibility and put on natural bug spray when they go outdoors. Then we can use these tax dollars more wisely. We need politicians with common sense to spend our tax dollars. This is an easy decision and they got it wrong.
Just the fact that the larvae of the mosquito are not killed and will hatch 7 days later should be enough for the city to realize this is not a good plan. Once again Ft Worth, by not spraying, proves the smarter city.
Please take care of my Dallas and respect those that are allergic to toxic sprays, everyone should listen to the Dirt Doctor and do their help in controlling the problem.
