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.
