Eliminate mosquito breeding sites:

Below are guidelines that you can follow to help reduce mosquitoes around your property.

  • Empty containers that can accumulate standing water and store them upside-down.
  • Keep gutters clean. Debris can clog your gutters causing them to retain water.
  • Inspect your roof, outdoor faucets and air-conditioner units for leaks. Repair to eliminate standing water.
  • Fill tree holes or stumps with a sealant or mortar to prevent water accumulation.
  • Treat ponds with “mosquito dunk” (an infusion of bacteria to prevent mosquito eggs from hatching).
  • Aerate ornamental ponds or stock with mosquito-eating fish such as western mosquito fish, goldfish and guppies.
  • Clean swimming pools regularly and keep chlorinated.  Also, empty and clean pool covers with standing water.
  • Change water in birdbaths and wading pools weekly.
