Just heard on the news today a proud announcement from MA that spraying
there has reduced the mosquito population by about half.  Apparently
municipalities can now undertake spraying if there is as much as one
positive mammal report of West Nile virus. Of course, the officials
hastened to say that this would not mean that the threat of West Nile was
any less.....  Perhaps we will have an influx of insectivores fleeing MA.
Their loss and our gain.
