Recent Mosquito Spraying

Pesticides were sprayed by helicopters above Islip, Southampton, Riverhead, and South hold on the week of July 9. Pesticides were also dropped onto the salt marshes in Babylon, Gilgo, West Gilgo, Cedar Beach and Oak Island. These areas are renowned mosquito breeding grounds.

This approach of spraying localized pesticides is in our opinion highly effective as it directly targets where the mosquitos congregate in the largest numbers. Therefore the highest number of mosquitos can be killed while using as little pesticides as possible to accomplish this. Although pesticides are considered to not be harmful to humans or animals when sprayed in this manner, it is simply common knowledge that the chemicals in pesticides themselves or not 100% safe for people or animals. It is even a current theory that the shellfish and specifically the lobster population is being weekend by the broad spectrum spraying of pesticides.
