Are the chemicals used in the spray trucks harmful?

No, not when used properly. The chemicals we use are approved by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Agriculture and Forestry for control of insect pests. The chemicals can be harmful to some fish species such as koi and goldfish. For more information you can contact our department’s biologists or night spray supervisor.
