The threat of aerial spraying for mosquitos is on hold thanks to the delta breezes that picked up Thursday PM. It remains to be seen whether it will happen in the coming week or not. It's frustrating that backyard standing water seems to be a major contributor to the mosquito problem and that people can't seem to take the time to do a quick check of their yard to dump out stagnant water. I'm not happy about the idea of my yard being sprayed...and I'm getting tired of covering the veggies. I really don't want to have to worry about the food I'm growing myself...part of the reason I grow it is so that I don't have to worry about what is on what we eat. My yard is full of spiders, bees, skippers and cabbage moths with lesser numbers of other visitors and I'll be interested to see what happens if and when we get sprayed...(if only they could target earwigs...)
