Important Mosquito Information:

  1. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. To keep populations low, please remove standing water in your yard and local parks if possible. Dump bird baths once per week, dump wheelbarrows, tires, and kiddy pools after rains, etc. Water collected in a bottle cap can produce mosquitoes, so every bit of water helps!

  2. Wear repellants that contain DEET or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus to protect yourself from mosquitoes effectively.

  3. Avoid activity at dusk as most mosquito species are most active during this time.

  4. Wear protective, lightweight long sleeves and pants to protect yourself from mosquito bites.
