WS, I havent heard much about it this year but 2 years ago there was a lot of spraying for this reason in the Boston area. Then last year the state decided to wait until people were infected and nothing much was said about the disease. Heres a link from the state of Mass website on there spraying program. In question #16, they say that the pesticides used do harm fish & bees and should not be used in wetlands
