The only way spraying policy will be changed is to apply pressure on legislators. There is a lot of money behind the policy, so it will take persistent work to get some sanity into it. Write and speak to your legislators. Organize public protests of sprayings. Although these efforts won’t immediately stop a particular spraying, over the long term their effect will change things. When No Spray Zone was formed, the only notice the public had of gypsy moth sprayings was the sound of the spraying helicopter over their houses and apartments at dawn. Now, the WSDA has to at least notify people several months in advance by mail that they will sprayed. This took a concerted effort of hundreds of citizens.
