3In conclusion, the data I have collected about the usage and exposition of Malathion tohumans and animals prove to have minimum adversities or health risks. I believe that if theMalathion pesticide like many other pesticides is used properly and the population of people of the community where Malathion will be used is well educated about the risks of Malathion andits effects on humans, there will be a better understanding of the product and more acceptancestowards it.
Genericville City Council
Malathion Aerial Spraying Proposal
Although the City of Genericville is facing a problem of West Nile Virus cases due to themosquito breeding on the wetlands, the city council is proposing a voting either to implement or not the usage of Malathion via aerial spraying. The opinion of the community appears to bedivided and insecure whether to use Malathion or not because they stated that the poor anduneducated population of Genericville will fail to follow the safety precautions recommended toavoid the exposure to the pesticide.Lately the same sources of habitat for the wild life that makes Genericville popular among thetourists, is also the breeding grounds of carriers of the West Nile Virus like the mosquito. Thementioned virus has been responsible for taking the life of a Genericville own and of anapproximate amount of 177 people per year (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2007).Although the use of the pesticide Malathion results to be very toxic and effective againstmosquitoes, I found no evidence of harm towards humans or the natural predators of themosquito.
