The letter in Friday's paper about the spraying is so wrong. I know the mosquitoes get bad, sometimes but spraying them is costly!  It’s costly to the other insects out there that we need.

Have you seen a bee, a butterfly or anything else in your yard since they started the spraying? All the birds are gone, also. Sure, the bad bugs are killed, but what about the good ones?
