The North Fork Mosquito Abatement District is a small operation based out of Paonia that has to strike  a balance between keeping populations in check, while also trying to keep the citizens they’re protecting happy and safe.  It's a tricky tightrope that has been the source for debate for years.  KVNF's Jake Ryan talks to the employees about disease, fruit juice, dynamite, and more.
