The stuff must really work. Normally after a heavy rain this time of year mosquitoes would be pretty bad. Of course my willy may fall off next month.

That's lepra. If it happens, send me pics. I won't laugh. I lost mine too.

Those do really work. Sadly all don't die, they become immune and then we are in a world of shit.

To my earlier posts: I'm sorry if i came out as a negative voice against these sprayings, and i do get that a disaster zone is different than every "day" use. My eagle example apparently is also questioned in the USA but we've studied these a lot here, and we've come to the conclusion that fucking with an eco system fast means bad shit happens.

The state Dep't of Health Services states that approx 1-2 tablespoons (~15 -30ml) / acre are being sprayed. Don't know if that is a significant dose for humans or animals, but, it doesn't sound like much.

Houston has had cases of W. Nile Virus and I think some cases of Zika. With all the standing water we'd have swarms of mosquitoes without some eradication program. And with a large population and so many people coming and going from all of the world, that could be very bad.

PS. No pics unless I grow a second one from the chemical exposure.

That sounds healthy! The cultural difference between the eu and the usa in these matters is pretty funny. One of my first ways to make a little pocket money was to make nest boxes for insect eating birds. In a few years that, and filling the spots that gathered water with leafs made the mosquitos almost vanish at our cabin. Child labor sucks

If it was just me I'd skip the spraying and just watch out for myself by putting on a lot of DEET (not so healthy I know) or staying inside until the first freeze (which may be in a few years in Houston).

But many people don't know better or don't have the options to take care. If some sort of epidemic of W Nile or whatever took hold it would be the lower income people that would likely be hit the hardest. Then the lack of spraying would morph into a conspiracy by the pharmaceutical companies by those inclined to look for such theories.

That's why they get the lead in all the cool fairytales.

Edit: I consulted my fairytale specialist. Apparently frogs turn in to men, so never mind. Frogs have the worst parts.

You should remind your fairytale specialist that Tiana was a princess who turned into a frog and then back to a princess.
