City and County team up against mosquitos, not rodents

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock and the county will team up to kill mosquitoes but not rodents.  

The issue comes up in Thursday's city council meeting. The county will agree to pay more than $11,000 a month for help with mosquito eradication.  

Previously, the city also did rodent control for the county. But now, records indicate, there are new and expensive federal requirements. So, the city will not provide rodent traps out in the county.
