    Likewise, when I was young, the Street dept in my river town used to spray for mosquitoes at dusk. I clearly recall riding with other kids behind the pickup truck through the thick, white fog. Good times.

You could hear it coming for blocks away. Us crazy kids used to run out and play in the smoke. How did we ever survive those days?

    A few years later, I worked at a community pool. They had a small one that hung over your shoulder and squirted the smoke out a 5-6 foot pipe. Instructions on the can of stuff you put in it said very clearly. DON'T BREATHE the smoke, etc.

    Growing up in a navy/civil service housing complex, the navy operated a truck up and down the alleys in the summer spewing DDT clouds. We also ran along behind it in the fog. Maybe I absorbed enough that mosquitoes don`t bother me these days?
