Dear Ottawa Hills Village Council:

The "mosquito spray" called DUET causes more harm than good. It is a highly toxic mist more powerful than those originally developed for our military to use against our enemies. It poses unacceptable risk to human health - including causing birth defects, breast cancer, and asthma. It devastates nature - killing butterflies, honey bees, baby birds, fish, and frogs.

The spray is an ineffective way to control mosquitos. It worsens the mosquito problem. It only temporarily clears the air of adult mosquitos, leaving mosquito larvae undisturbed. Meanwhile, it clears the ecosystem of species that feed on mosquitos. The mosquitos will come right back - but, tragically the mosquito-eaters will not.
The use of this type of pesticide has already been banned in several Canadian provinces, major U.S. cities, and communities throughout Ohio.
I am an Ottawa Hills resident. Please reconsider the decision to use this deadly chemical on us - there are much better ways to control mosquitos.
