OUR CHAPTER'S POSITION ON AERIAL SPRAYING FOR MOSQUITO CONTROL
We fully support the 2013 Audubon Texas West Nile virus prevention policy as linked here and urge everyone to practice the 4 Ds of mosquito control to prevent the spread of the West Nile virus in our community. As guardians of the natural world, we have grave concerns about the immediate and long-term effects of the category of pesticides being used for ground and aerial spraying in Dallas County. The pesticides typically used are adulticide sprays, such as Biomist or Duet ULV, with the active ingredient of permethrin. Permethrin is toxic to honeybees and other beneficial insects, fish, and aquatic invertebrates. Ground-based spraying should be isolated to areas around specific mosquito trap sites that have tested positive for West Nile virus, or, in a public health emergency, only to areas where clusters of human cases have been confirmed. We oppose aerial spraying of adulticides.
