In some small part, it seems the answer is yes. But other factors are in play in the county’s hinterlands.

So what would it take to let the local people control their own area??? Instead of begging for treatments, give them the stuff to apply and train them so the land gets the same treatment no matter who treats it.

What a ridiculous story. Scott County is filled with lots of lakes, streams, swamps and rivers. It is not very densely populated overall, and there are bugs. There have always been bugs, there will always be bugs. MMCD can help to control them, but cannot eliminate them. Judging from stories I've heard from old-timers, before MMCD was around, things were much worse.

As a resident of Scott county, if you don't like the bugs, move to Minneapolis or Richfield. I love the refuge.
