Spraying Dibrom for mosquitoes? in Miami? heres some info if there still using Diprom.
The Miami-Dade County Department of Solid Waste Management's Mosquito Control Section commonly sprays in response to state Department of Health investigations and requests from residents.
The Mosquito Control Section has applied Naled via an ultra-low-volume spray for many years, officials said in a news release. In fact, Dibrom has been used in the United States over the past 50 years, said Timothy J. Donnelly, vice president, chief administrative officer and general counsel of AMVAC Chemical Corp

NOW... what else is dibrom?

The Germans invented nerve agents during World War II

Naled is a nerve agent

Must bear the signal words "Danger-Poison"

Naled (trade name Dibrom) is an organophosphate with many of the same characteristics and concerns as malathion. Naled can cause cholinesterase inhibition in humans: that is, it can over stimulate the nervous system causing nausea, dizziness, confusion, and at high exposures, can cause respiratory paralysis and death. One of the byproducts of degradation of Naled is dichlorvos, another registered organophosphate. This compound is of toxicological concern.

Researchers at the Cornell University Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors in New York State review several studies on dichlorvos. In one study, female mice that were fed high doses of dichlorvos over a long period of time had a higher frequency of stomach cancers than untreated mice. High doses of dichlorvos fed over two years caused an increase in the number of male rats that had pancreatic tumors and leukemia. A higher number of leukemia cases were reported in one study among male farmers who used dichlorvos for more than ten days per year, compared to those who had not used dichlorvos. A higher number of childhood brain cancer cases were reported among families that used dichlorvos than among families that did not.

Naled for Mosquito Control
[link to www.epa.gov (secure)]

Naled is an organophosphate insecticide first registered for use as an "adulticide insecticide" in 1959 primarily to control adult mosquitoes (#EPA Pesticides - Mosquito Control, 2007). Naled breaks down into dichlorvos in both animals and in the environment and has many health effects, both chronic and acute (#Cox, 2002).
