The following was reported: On May 22, 2020, my neighbors had a company (name) fog/spray their lawn for mosquitoes. I didn't know this was happening and I was outside in the backyard with my dog. I heard a noise like a lawn mower between the houses and the technician approached the backyard I smelled something funny and noticed the fog jetting out of this machine towards my property where my dog was. We have a chain link fence, so the chemical fog was jetting out to my property and spraying my dog. The technician knew my dog was on the other side and saw him as the foliage is no more then a foot high. Plus, I went there to try to get my dog away from the fence and the technician didn't stop. My dog was interested and thought the guy was playing. My dog thought it was exciting as he was getting a mouth full of chemical fog and sneezing. When the technician went to leave, I tried to get his attention to ask him about the chemical. He stopped, I asked him if it is safe what he was using. He said it's no different then the flea and tick chemical you put on your dog and walked away. I attempted to call (name) as I wanted to know what my dog and I were exposed to. I ran into my neighbors the next day and told them the situation. I asked them about the chemical used. She said that it was harmless and that the company told her it's organic. I noticed the sign on their lawn showing a picture "Pesticide" Do not walk. Called (name) again on May 29, 2020 and reported the incident. The company told me all their products are environmentally friendly and gave me the name of the chemical, Dragnet. I asked if it was safe while it's being applied for dogs and humans. She said it was. I beg to differ.

The following was reported: I instantly got a sore throat and started not to feel well. I called the company who applied the chemical, but started to really feel tired and my lungs hurt and they were not answering. I went to rest as I really felt sick. I felt a bit better that night, not 100% for the past few days. Lungs don't hurt as much.
