STOP unnecessary, ineffective, toxic mosquito pesticide fogging!

Santa Clara County claims pesticide fogging is necessary to control mosquitoes that carry West Nile Virus and that the pesticides used are “generally harmless in Ultra Low Volume applications”. However, research shows pesticide fogging is unnecessary, proven to be ineffective, toxic to people, bees, and the environment, and costly.

There are safer and more effective ways to control mosquitoes without exposing people, pets, beneficial insects to more pesticides.
