Most cities won't spray as the cities that have sprayed have had deaths of either young children or the elderly, not to mention dogs and cats. Someone lost a child about a month back due to spraying.

I don't know exact numbers, but 10 years ago it was bad here, you saw several dead crows a day, we have been seeing crows and pigeons dead around here.

Hawks migrate south and this is the time of year they do it so if they do have West Nile it will show up now as migration stresses the body.

the City of Tampa discontinued spraying years ago. Their risk/benefit analysis found that spraying would harm more people than the number of people who statistically would contract West Nile. If I remember correctly, it was something like 10 times as many people would suffer breathing related issues (including death) per 100,000 residents as would contract the disease based on prevalence per 100,000 people. Personally, I think the mosquitos forced the spraying plane down in a swamp.
