Is Mosquito Spraying Killing Crustaceans?

Nice to see our Peconic Baykeeper, Kevin McCallister being interviewed by News12 tonight on the topic of aerial spraying of larvicide for the control of mosquitoes.  Kevin relays anecdotal reports that crabbers are bringing up dead crabs after mosquito spraying by the County Vector Control helicopters.  The County spokesperson says that the spraying is safe, and the science supports the use of the larvicide, but what about those dead crabs?
