We visited in Leland yesterday, and found that the city of Leland sprays for mosquitoes about once a week. It made sitting outside very nice.

Where we live in Onslow County, they do not spray. You have to coat yourself with mosquito repellant if you want to work outside. Even then, the mosquitoes bite through your socks, and my ankles are covered in bites.

So, I was curious which areas on the coast spray for mosquitoes and which do not. Are there health hazards associated with spraying? is it harmful to birds?

Are the mosquitos that bad all the time, or is this just an after effect of Irene?

In my area, Sneads Ferry near The ICWW, the mosquitoes are bad all the time. It's just the result of living near a marshland. The county doesn't spray, but a home-owner can hire a firm. The effect lasts for a few weeks.
