I live in a neighborhood where the houses are about 9 or 10 feet apart. Yesterday my next door neighbors were spraying something on the rocks outside their home. It was maybe an insecticide or weed killer. It smelled very strong and very bad. After about 5 minutes of smelling it I started to develop a headache and it got worse and worse the longer the smell stayed around. The smell was everywhere in my house, there was not a room I could go to get away. It got so bad my husband and I took our toddler and baby in my car and left. We stayed gone for over five hours. As soon as we got away from the smell my headache went away. My belief is that if you can smell it then you are probably inhaling the chemicals. I have two small kids, one is only 3 month old and they know this. Should I tell them what the chemicals did to our family and ask them to not do it again? They are not nice people and have never even said "Hi" back to us.Answer Question

go down to your local township hall or police dept.. ask some questions regarding such type chemicals being allowed ...
Have you tried to talk to your neighbors? Maybe trying to open a communication channel with them may help, maybe they don't realize just how much the fumes may have bothered others..
otherwise your opitions maybe limited... also go talk to your local fire dept chief... see if there is chemical usuage limits in your area...
