WEST NILE VIRUS: A story in the Wednesday, Dec. 3, edition incorrectly reported a policy to control mosquitoes and the spread of West Nile Virus. Colorado Mosquito Control of Broomfield, the company Garfield County government plans to hire, will ask private landowners for permission to put out larvicides to kill mosquito larvae in places of standing water. Aerial spraying to kill adult mosquitoes would only be done as a last resort, said Steve Anthony, Garfield County’s weed and pest control officer.
