Mosquito bites are more than an irritation—they can cause serious illnesses that sometimes turn fatal.
We are working hard to keep mosquito populations from growing.
But the key to staying healthy is preventing mosquito bites – that’s where you can help!
REMEMBER THE FOUR Rs
WHAT YOU CAN DO
You can help prevent mosquitoes from breeding simply by depriving them of water, which they need to breed. Tip and toss even the smallest amounts of standing water from your home and yard. Plant pots, bird baths, kiddie pools, buckets and fountains are some of the places where
mosquitoes can breed. View the backyard checklist and see what Environmental Services is doing to keep your neighborhood safe.
