Crop dustingReply: Bridget
It certainly could be coincidence that three of us were not feeling well at the same time. I do hope that when they spray again that the symptoms don't show up again.  I would love to know what the ingredients are as well as when they will spray again.  If I can get that information, I will certainly share it here.

Spraying Nursery with Organic Spray by HelicopterReply: Nathan
We were informed at our last community meeting by Kristen Huyck from Supervisor Jeffries office that it is a spraying happening at Altman Nursery and is completely organic using a mix of garlic, peppers, water etc. Not sure of the exact mix or the frequency of future spraying but we were informed of the above. Hope this helps.

Crop Dusting Covered Vegetation.Reply: Hugh
Certainly I'm no expert in crop dusting or growing of nursery plants.  My question is this: Why would you attempt to 'crop dust' nursery plants that are grown under cover by vinyl or plastic? Feeling bad is a natural occurrence. It affects all of us from time to time. As far as schedule and chemicals used may I suggest contacting the nursery in question directly for you answer.

Crop Dusting in nurseryPost: Bridget
For those who live close to the nursery on Lake Mathews.  Have any of you experienced feeling ill after the crop dusting 3-4 weeks back?  I know of at least 3 people who had been feeling bad after, including myself.  Is there a schedule of when they will do this again and what chemicals are being dropped?  I have also heard that some animals had been displaying sickness after.
