Mosquito Spray Program
A MESSAGE FROM THE PROGRAM MANAGER (Brian Prendergast) FOR MOSQUITO CONTROL AT THE MD DEPT OF AGRICULTURE:
"We use a chemical called permethrin. This is the same chemical that is in dog-flea shampoo and human lice shampoo. Soldiers put it on the uniforms to protect from malaria and other diseases. The formulation matters more than the active ingredient. We're currently using a formulation called biomist 30/30. The EPA has registered formulations of this chemical for use in mosquito control. We use it according to the label and EPA instructions. The EPA requires a huge amount of data before they provide approval. We have not been implicated in harming any other animals. There is no evidence that this chemical hurts plants.
We offer exemptions to anyone that applies for one. With that, we turn the machine off 300 feet before we get to an exempter's property and turn it back on 300 feet away from the exempter's property. 300 feet was chosen because that is the farthest the cloud can drift before it breaks up to the point where it is ineffective. With that, it is very unlikely that it would affect the people in an exempter's residence. This can really affect the neighbors, as it is possible to get so many exemptions that a community is non-sprayable.
We only spray when the number of mosquitoes in local traps or counted by the driver exceeds a treatment threshold. Citizens may enter complaints and our inspectors will visit a property to see what type of mosquitoes are causing a problem and treat sources where larvae develop. This can be successful in some cases. In others the mosquitoes may be coming from too far away to determine the source, or the skeeters might be coming from a person's own property."

ARDEN TALK DISCUSSION FORUM
*NOTE: You will need to request permission to post in our Discussion Forum
The Arden Talk Discussion Forum is a new way to have conversation with your neighbors on our website. The purpose of this platform is to communicate with neighbors to request assistance from Arden youths/students, both hired and volunteer, especially for our Arden Seniors who have yard work, house work, odd jobs, organizing/cleaning needs, inclement weather needs, shopping needs, etc. Please participate if you are looking for help or would like to provide help.
That time again! SAVING GRACE ANIMAL RESCUE OF MARYLAND has asked if Arden will once again be part of their fundraiser that collects gently used shoes and boots each year. This will be year five for Arden, and a good cause it is. Saving Grace, is a local, all volunteer, nonprofit animal rescue. They rescue and foster both dogs and cats from up and down the East Coast. They do not have a facility and are supported entirely by donations and fundraisers. The shoes and boots collected are given to another nonprofit that works with developing countries. Saving Grace is paid by the pound for the shoes they collect. $$ are used to provide veterinary care for sick and injured animals. The blue collection bucket is back and is located by the side door at the Town Hall on Omar Drive. You can also call Etta Bardelang at (410) 923-2917 for pick up or if you have any questions. If you would like to learn more about the Rescue the website click on the link to the right. The last day for collection is May 10th. This is a good closet spring cleaning initiative. ;-)
