Would You Approve Of Aerial Insecticide Spray Over Grand Rapids To Control West Nile?

Dallas is currently experiencing a major outbreak of West Nile virus.  20 people have died from West Nile this year in Texas, 10 in Dallas County. Hundreds have been infected.

If Grand Rapids were to ever experience a major West Nile outbreak, would you approve of spraying aerial insecticide to control it?
