Robert Peterson, a professor of entomology at Montana State University, was interviewed by National Public Radio about aerial spraying to control mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus, since some people are expressing concerns about how the pesticides will affect their health.
"The scientific weight of evidence strongly suggests that there's negligible risk from the spraying, and there's not negligible risk from West Nile virus disease," he said.
