Another company that offers AP products came up with a fogger or sprayer or whatever you want to call it, but the authorities took a dim view of the idea, especially when it was suggested to spray for mosquitos in a large city such as Chicago.......

While not a bad idea, it could VERY easily be used for not so nice purposes....

I can understand the fly thing,they stoped spraying 15 years ago in the north,were the norm was to spray with DDTs every year to control mosquitos.The proplem now is the tent worm catepillars are so bad, the city can only aford to spray parks and rec areas.These worm start at the top and in two or three days thiers not a green spot left,it looks like fall.I talk to the company doing the sparying they can't use a full size planes or choppers the arears are to small,so they can,t get a airborn perment for the chems,So they have to spary from the ground only.Some of the parks only have 15 to 20 trees. So you can under stand why it's so important to keep what trees are left green.Times all the small parks and recreation areas by 50.If man power and time could be cut down,I think the city would be interested in doing more small areas.Something to work on for next spring.
