Yolo Bypass Spraying
The last week or two I've noticed the little plane zooming around and spraying something out over the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area early in the mornings. I noticed the spray sometimes drifting quite a distance and since I was in the area I wondered about safety. What might I be breathing in? What do they spray? Is it possibly harmful to people or wildlife like birds?

Paul, I would pose this question to the wildlife area as we should not speculate here. There are several possibilities, mosquito abatement, rice ag applications (herbicides).

I was told once that these planes are also used to drop seeds, esp rice.
