What can the general public do to help us with our mosquito control program?
Here are some tips to prevent mosquitoes from breeding on your property:
- Keep rain gutters free of debris.
- Clean birdbaths at least once a week.
- Keep yard and surrounding areas free of any artificial containers, which can collect rainwater.
- Eliminate standing water from crawl spaces and basements.
Anything holding water for at least four days can become a mosquito habitat. In addition, if you find a mosquito habitat, please do not hesitate to call our office.
A mosquitofish, or Gambusia affinis, is used to control Mosquito Larvae. They eat hundreds of larvae every day.
