Lake County authorities say it is now OK to leave your homes. Just don't breathe the air.

Haha, according to the Patch:
Lake County Sheriff's Office said 75 gallons of a pesticide spilled onto the ground in North Barrington Tuesday after a mosquito abatement company vehicle hauling the liquid crashed into a tree. The sheriff's office said a preliminary investigation shows an Alsip man driving the company's 2007 Ford truck left the road and crashed after he fell asleep while driving.

Make no mistake, 75 gallons of liquid insecticides is a turd in anybody's punchbowl.  And while your LakeCountyEye tried to contact the at-fault mosquito abatement company for some answers, it turns out that no one knows who it is.

Not the Sun-Times ...
The truck was carrying pesticides for a mosquito abatement company

And not WBBM ...
The mosquito abatement company contacted an environmental service to clean up the spill.

And not the Daily Herald ...

Does anyone have any idea who this unidentified "mosquito abatement company" could be?
