Adrienne Davis started this petition to Mayor Thomas J. Broderick, Jr. and

The street department is using Evoluer 4-4 ULV to control the mosquito population in Anderson, Indiana. This product is sprayed from the back of a truck as they go from street to street. Anyone walking on the sidewalk or street, or standing outside in their front yard will get sprayed by this solution. If your kids are playing out front, they will get sprayed. 

While the street department says this product is safe, doing a Google search brings up many articles and safety data sheets that show the harmfulness of this product. It also harms other insects, not just mosquitos. We need insects for many things, and killing them with this product will only further hurt our wildlife ecosystems. 

There are many natural methods that can be used, including essential oils and vinegar. These products are much safer for humans, pets, and wildlife, and just as effective. There are also companies that the city of Anderson can use that specialize in all-natural pest control.

As the mom of a 6-month old baby, I don't want to be outside and have my baby sprayed with this Evoluer product. Nor do I want the neighborhood kids (or any of my neighbors) being sprayed. We need our yards to be safe from chemicals for our kiddos to run and play. 

Please, Mayor Broderick and city of Anderson Street Department, choose an all-natural option for mosquitos and other pests. I have a few ideas if you need them. Please do better for the health of residents in this town, for your own families, and for all those who will move to Anderson in the future.
