It's not the buzz of mosquitoes, but the state sprayers that can be heard in the Pachaug State Forest as Connecticut deals with a real threat from Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
"What we do is pool them together and test them, and they all came back positive," said Paul Capotosto, Mosquito Management Supervisor at the state park.
All 300 mosquitoes tested came back positive for the EEE virus.
"It's something to worry about," Capotosto said.
Normally, it's bird-biting mosquitoes that test positive, but this time, there were human-biting mosquitoes that tested positive as well. They have closed the state park, but even with the roads and trails clearly posted, some people didn't listen.
A biker came by as News 8's Bob Wilson was interviewing Capotosto.
"We see this biker come by here, what would you tell him?" Wilson asked.
"Well, you probably shouldn't be in the park," Capotosto said.
The state has three trucks out spraying through the early evening hours. Capotosto says in his 30-plus years of encephalitis scares, this one is at the top of the list.
"Massachusetts had 7 cases last year and three people died. Vermont had its first two cases last year, and both of those people died," Capotosto said.
The state will be spraying about 12 miles, 300 acres inside the park, and will be doing it right out of the back of a truck. State officials say the spray is extremely safe, and has been tested, and works well to try to curb the mosquitoes.
"The product breaks down in sunlight and will be gone in 24 hours, so it's a safe product for mosquito control," Capotosto said.
Across the street from the park is a camp site. They have posted warnings and it's really been hurting business.
