Control & Prevention

To control mosquito populations around your home or business, the following steps should be taken:

  • Discard old tires, tin cans, ceramic pots, or other containers that can hold water
  • Turn over items that can collect water such as toys, pools, flower pots, and trash containers
  • Tightly cover items so water does not accumulate in and/or on top of them
  • Clean clogged roof gutters
  • Frequently clean and replace the water in pet bowls and birdbaths
  • Keep grass cut short
  • Aerate ornamental ponds or stock them with predatory fish
  • Use a larvicide if standing water cannot be eliminated
  • Keep screens in good repair and exterior doors tightly closed
  • Keep septic systems in good repair
