SRPNA pushes for responsible mosquito control

TUCSON -- Today we inquired with Pima Cty. and the city about recently announced mosquito control plans.

Our short letter to responsible officials in Pima County and the City of Tucson 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.

President, Santa Rita Park NA
