Neighborhood wants responsible mosquito control
TUCSON -- Today the Santa Rita Park Neighborhood Association inquired with Pima County and the city about recently announced mosquito control plans.
Our short letter to Pima County and the City of Tucson Office of Conservation is below.
How does the county plan to 'treat' standing water?
If pesticides will be used, has the county considered health concerns, and kill of other species besides mosquitos?
We are concerned that the fight against West Nile could lead to other problems created by pesticides and clearing of vegetation.
We await the response.
