Help Fight the Bite!
Mosquitoes are annoying and carry serious diseases such as encephalitis (West Nile, St Louis, and Eastern Equine), yellow fever, dengue and malaria. Be a good neighbor and help control mosquitoes. If there are any places around your home where water collects, you may be raising mosquitoes!
- Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Move house cooler drain hoses frequently.
- Install screens on rain barrels and openings to water tanks or cistern.
- Empty water from boats.
- Change water and scrub vases holding flowers or cuttings twice each week, or grow cuttings in sand.
- Get rid of old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums and other containers.
- Clean clogged roof gutters and drain flat roofs.
- Scrub and change water in bird baths twice weekly; empty watering areas of pets and chickens daily.
- Fill holes in trees with sand or mortar, or drain or spray them as required.
- Empty your plastic wading pool weekly and store it indoors when not in use.
- Stock fish pools or lily ponds with minnows. These fish devour mosquito larvae.
Why Mosquitoes Need Water
Some mosquitoes lay their eggs on standing water where they hatch in a day or two. Other mosquitoes lay their eggs in old tires, tin cans or other water-holding containers in which they may remain un-hatched for weeks or months until they are covered with water. With both types of mosquitoes, the wigglers or larvae grow quickly and turn into pupae. Soon the skin of the pupae splits open and out climbs another hungry mosquito. So do not leave any standing water around in which mosquitoes can breed.
