Re: West Nile Virus Help ???
Want to applaud your good sense and
logic (with a touch of flair). Somehow we
have gotten to the point where we decry
the loss of habitat of whatever, but totally
disregard the needs that led to the destruction.
There is an absolute maxim in nature; survival
of the fittest/most flexible/most adaptable/most
determined. If we need to spray to control the Nile
virus then it needs to be done. If that saves one or
ten or a million is irrelevant. To the best of my
knowledge, humans come first and the age,
status or health is not a variable for consideration.
Now whether you culture mossies or not is really
neither here nor there, since none of the cultures
amount to a hill of beans when compared to an
acre pond, and the spraying will occur there!
Even then, the impact is limited according to our
local DNR. But of course they are "politicians,
bureaucrats and civil service types" and as such
cannot be believed.
