Letter: Lack of mosquito control bugs reader

I read with interest the article that Alyson Buschena wrote about how severe the problem of mosquitoes will be this year. She also wrote about how we can try to protect ourselves from them.

Worthington is one of the few towns in this area that does not have a mosquito control program, such as spraying for them. We have a short summer, and it is too bad to not be able to outdoors after 7 p.m. or so because of the mosquitoes.

I try to spray my own yard, but such a limited area isn't too effective. I have mentioned mosquito control to one or two council members and have been disappointed in the lack of interest. I realize there is no complete answer to this problem.

I think this is not only a matter of mosquito control, but also a health concern.
