Breslau biological mosquito control
To: Councillor Larry Shantz
CC: Waterloo Region Public Health
CC: Woolwich Mayor Sandy Shantz
We, the residents of the Breslau community would like to call the attention of Waterloo Region Public Health and city management to the increasingly urgent and disturbing issue of mosquitos in our neighborhood.
Mosquitoes have been harassing the residents of this area, day and night, in the summer ever since this community was built, and have, over the years, rendered outdoor activities extremely difficult. Mosquitoes are everywhere, on the driveway, on the patio, in the backyard, and even at while walking on the side walk.
We'd like to emphasize that we are not just talking about evenings. We experience massive numbers of mosquito bites throughout the day, from morning to night. Some families have to go camping to enjoy an outdoor experience with less harassment from mosquitos. We believe this unusually large number of mosquitoes poses a serious threat to the health of residents and exposes families, especially children, to increased risk of West Nile virus and other diseases.
We hereby petition to the city for assistance in this important and urgent matter of public health and welfare. To get mosquitoes under control for this coming summer, your prompt action is much appreciated.
Residents of the Breslau community.
