In recognizing the hazardous identification of the application of the pesticide Malathion, I  see no adverse affect to cause cancer or birth defects from exposure to the pesticide.  The application of Malathion will be a one time application that will have little or no effect  on the environment or humans who come into contact with the pesticide. The areas that  will be treated should be barricaded off from having pedestrians from coming into  contact with the pesticide to have more of a controlled situation, and less chance of a  person getting sick from this. Since this town is a vacation spot for many tourists and  local people barricading the area to keep individuals with a low tolerance and pregnant  women from being exposed to this will keep the fear of the community to a minimum  and giving them a sense of well being that everything is under control. With taking into account all of the factors that can or could occur it is safe to say that  whether we go forward with the spraying of the pesticide, or if we do nothing and allow  the people of this community to continue to suffer the spread of the West Nile Virus in  either case there will be suffering. I believe that we are in a dilemma in this case  because if we do nothing to stop the infestation of the mosquitoes the population of the  mosquitoes will only get worse. I read the argument that is against the spraying of the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
