No doubt you have all heard some discussion of the mosquitos-borne Nile virus and efforts to limit its spread through spraying, etc. While acknowledging the saftey concerns, what , if any, may be the environmental issues (re: trout fisheries) from this spraying? In the rush to protect the old folks most susceptible (I guess that would include me) are we imperilling the fisheries? And if we are, is it worth it?
