    I just noticed a plane going overhead quite a few times. I believe they are spraying for mosquitos that carry the EEE virus. I have no idea what they spray from these planes. Does anyone know if this can be harmful to my girls. I have 4 7wk old RIRs.

    Don't mean to sound ugly but I would be more worried about finding out if it's harmful to my family or myself!! Do you know for sure that's what they were doing?? I would try to contact what ever department that handles the mosquit abatement in your area and see if that's what it was.
