Reader feedback: Stop spraying for mosquitoes

Re: Bratislava and Záhorie sound mosquito alert, May 15 - May 21, 2006, Volume 12, Number 19

What kind of Banana Republic is Slovakia? Spewing tonnes of poison into the air to get rid of mosquitoes?

Wake up to the dangers of repeated flights over rivers that spread dangerous chemicals over huge areas, affect our children and damage nature. Is this really legal within the environmental regulations of the EU? It simply can't be. It must be stopped!
