West Nile Spraying: Are you Concerned?

The county sprayed the Plainview area this week; did you take precautions?

Nassau County conducted spraying in Plainview this week designed to kill the mosquitoes responsible for

It's an annual occurrence now, but we were wondering: Do you take precautions?

Does the spraying concern you, or do you have other things to worry about?

What's your take on the spraying efforts?

Tainted mosquito samples are being found throughout the Island. But no human cases reported here. A Staten Island man was hospitalized in July.

Ineffective spray job. Small trucks circulated thru the neighborhood and sprayed from sidewalks to front lawns. Back and side yard areas were not sprayed. Don't mesquitos fly all over. Why only spray certain parts of a street. This should have been don by airplane so that every area got sprayed. This was a waste of time and taxpayer money.

Al G: Good question. I'll look into it. They have said in the past that they target certain areas known to be breeding areas, but I need more info. Thanks. jd

I totally agree!! These pests have ruined the summer for too many. We can't enjoy our backyards or pool because of the interable bites. They are so large and swollen that it looks & feels like bionic mosquitos are biting. SERIOUSLY..........??? Why haven't we dealt with this problem sooner & more effectively. It's been known that this summer was going to be a big mosquito problem......???

I don't understand why they only sprayed the west side of old country road and the Plainview residents on the east side got none. I get bitten more then most people and my area was not sprayed. Why???
