Colorado town complains against mosquito spraying

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - Residents of Longmont are lining up to complain about citywide mosquito spraying aimed at lowering exposure to the West Nile virus.

The Longmont City Council is expected to hear their complaints at a meeting on Tuesday.

City officials tell the Longmont Times-Call the spray is not toxic, but residents are blaming it for killing bees and spreading poison.

Human infections can occur without symptoms or can cause mild or severe illness, fever and aches. Infections can also lead to chronic disability and even death.
