Help Prevent Mosquitoes !
Adult female mosquitoes reproduce in stagnant water. The water can vary greatly from as small as a cup of water to a woodland pond.
These are the 3 key steps to control mosquitoes:
Identify mosquito larva breeding sites (areas of standing water)
Empty the water every 5-7 days or
Apply a Mosquito Control Product

Controlling mosquito populations is a community effort. Everyone should be diligent about removing stagnant water from their properties. Please contact our office if you see a property which may be breeding mosquitoes.
Some examples of objects producing stagnant water include:
Unattended/unkempt swimming pools
When possible, containers should be emptied every 5 days to prevent adult mosquitoes from emerging. For waters which cannot be emptied, such as ornamental fish ponds and ditches, homeowners can apply a bacteria based pesticide, which kills the larvae, but is safe around fish, pets, and children.
