In July 1974, mosquito control officials asked that parents not let children play in the fog being used to kill mosquitoes in the area in the following press release.

“Drivers of the fogging trucks have reported children throughout the county playing in the fog. The practice is not safe both because the fog is toxic and also because children are playing in the streets and motorists cannot see them.

Mosquito control officials ask parents to keep children indoors when the fog is visible.”
