Just found out on the news this morning that my whole county is being sprayed for mosquitoes. It's an aerial spray, so there's no way to opt out. We're supposed to stay indoors and turn off our air conditioners from 8 p.m. to midnight each night when it has been over 100 degrees every day, and at night it's still in the 80s. We're advised to wash off things that humans can touch, and pets are to be kept indoors. Even with all these precautions, they insist that it's harmless for humans and animals. I'm skeptical. The idea that we're being sprayed with pesticides with no choice in the matter really irritates me. It's going to be terrible for those of us who are sensitive to chemicals. (Not to mention, my husband just started painting the kitchen, and now we'll have to leave everything taped up and unusable, because painting without ventilation would be just intolerable.) The aerial spraying is supposed to happen over the course of eight nights.... Sigh. Anyway, sorry this is just a rant.
