CHECK AROUND YOUR HOUSE/YARD FOR STANDING WATER

May 31, 2016

Please take a few minutes and walk around your yard and house to check for any standing water.  This includes rain water that has filled any planters, buckets, tires, gutters, bird baths, etc.  Mosquitoes will lay their eggs in these areas and these areas typically have quicker hatches as the water warms more quickly.  If you can dump these items, it helps immensely.  The more we limit the standing water breading areas, the less backyard mosquitoes there is.

Thank you, your help is appreciated!
