Borough's Environmental Advisory Council Interviews County Department of Health About Mosquito Spraying Program
In September of 2012, the Bucks County Department of Health applied pesticide spray in areas of Doylestown Borough in an effort to kill adult mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus. Due to concerns raised by members of the community, the Borough's Environmental Advisory Council conducted an interview with William Roth, the County's Director of Environmental Health. The interview addressed four main topics: (1) The details of the County's Integrated Pest Management Program, (2) The Borough's participation in the program, (3) Concerns regarding pesticide spray, and (4) Steps residents can take to limit the need for pesticide spray in the future.
With assistance from Middle Bucks Institute of Technology, the interview was recorded. A video of the interview can be viewed here.
