Do you know what they are spraying? if it is a bacterium, such as
Bacillus thuringiensis [B. thuringiensis (known as 'Bt') is an insecticidal
bacterium, marketed worldwide for control of many important plant pests - mainly
caterpillars of the Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) but also for control of
mosquito larvae, and simuliid blackflies that vector river blindness in Africa it
is specific to certain types of flying insect such as mosquitos.] then your
