Ugh... Last night the city rolled a truck through the neighborhood spraying mosquitoes to keep West Nile in check. Hotter than hell and drier than Egypt all summer and hard to find a mosquito but there you have it.
I had just enough notice so that I could go out and put a tarp over my top bar hive where the ladies were bearded up outside the entrance enjoying a summer night.
My concern isn't so much about the direct effect of spraying since my hive is in the backyard some distance from the street but I don't know how much residual they will pick up and bring back. Every flower, plant and shrub in a mile radius was probably sprayed and I wondered if anyone had any experience with the after effects of municipal spraying for mosquitoes.
