The only real solution is higher taxes so local communities can pay mosquito abatement companies. Broadcast spraying may only kill those insects in the air at that time, but it sure makes the citizens and undocumented residents feel good about themselves and their government. It is a WIN-WIN solution for government and private companies.

I like the way you adjusted to current reality by saying "citizens and undocumented residents", instead of just "citizens". As long as this group is getting larger and larger, it's right to start calling things what they are.

The only real solution is LOWER taxes and proper utilization of taxpayer dollars.

Perhaps they could rename "mosquito abatement" to a "social program" and hire only minorities. That oughta do it.
