Everyone can help control mosquitos! 

Residents are reminded to take the following precautions regarding mosquitoes:

~Minimize time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are the most active.

~When outside between dusk and dawn, wear loose-fitting, light-colored clothing that includes long pants, long-sleeved shirts, socks and shoes.

~ Apply insect repellents containing DEET, Picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus to exposed skin and clothing.

~ Make sure that doors and windows have tight fitting screens.

~Remove containers that may hold water to eliminate standing water which serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes, i.e., discarded tires, cans, ceramic pots.

~Change water in bird baths at least once per week, and drain and replace water in children’s backyard wading pools every four to five days.

~Make sure that rain gutters, downspouts, swimming pools and pool covers are free of standing water.

~Keeping grass and weeds cut short to eliminate hiding places for adult mosquitoes.
