Weather again delayed the start of the spraying in Woodway for gypsy moth caterpillars. When it cleared enough for the plane to take off and start its runs, the cloud cover forced the pilot to fly lower than the previous spraying.

How close was it?

The pilot set up his runs as far south as Innis Arden this time.

The spraying was completed in about 40 minutes and the pilot took off to surprise nearby businesses in south Everett as he set up runs to spray the Boulevard Bluffs neighborhood there.

The product being sprayed is non-toxic, but sticky. It can be washed off with soap and water.
