Lobsters, huh? Yeah, THE BIG PICTURE; the "Circle of Life" sans singing lions and such.

More narrowly focused: the trout/freshwater gamefish food chain, believing the spray is an insecticide and, where is it that mosquitos are born/emerge but waterways such as those where we find these fisheries. Done incorrectly, the local eradication programs which are springing up across the nation may have devastating consequences to these fisheries. Since statistical data (as reported by the media) doesn't yet seem to support malaria epidemic proportions and high human mortality, should we interfere with the process at all? [Concentrate our efforts around retirement homes?]

Just something to think about...
