Your Call 063008 The Light Brown Apple Moth's Future

What is next for the Light Brown Apple Moth? Plans to aerial spray the urban areas of Northern California have been canceled, but what does that mean for the state's strategy to eradicate the pest - and whose communities are still on the list to be sprayed? On the next Your Call we'll take a look at the campaign to stop the spray. How did local governments, environmental activists, and concerned scientists put a stop to the aerial application of pesticides on our cities? Does this victory mark the end of the struggle, or is it just the end of the beginning? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
