    Is this really safe though, sometimes I see small children running behind these trucks while fogging is being done, what about inhaling these fumes? This procedure CANNOT be good for asthmatics, we had fogging done in our area recently, still ad a problem with mosquitoes, there has to be a better way to eliminate mosquitoes.
