It would be more than just nice to report on what insecticide they are spraying so individuals can make their own determination whether or not it is safe for them, their families and their pets. Malathion was sprayed copiously in the 80s because it was "safe" at the time, but since then it seems to have become considerably less safe. Seems manufacturers start out with the statement things are safe, until using it proves otherwise. We're all test subjects.

To All,

I was wondering when 94041 would be sprayed? My wife and I work outside a lot plus we sit outside at night in our backyard. Please let me know please.
