    Public Service Announcement

    As many of you out there know, mosquitoes must have water and breed in just about anything from bromeliads to soda tops.

    Although the likelihood of contracting a mosquito-borne disease is minimal, we’d like to offer some tips to be beneficial for you and your neighborhood.

    • Check and Empty
      • Children’s toys
      • Untreated swimming pools
      • Uncovered boats/watercrafts that are not draining water
      • Plant trivets
      • Trash cans and lids
    • Change water in birdbaths and flush bromeliads once or twice a week
    • Keep yard debris out of the storm drains by properly bagging and removing it where it will not become a food source or breeding ground for mosquitoes
    • Repair screens on windows and doors
    • Keep gutters clear so they will drain properly
    • We encourage natural mosquito control by furnishing gambusia fish for your ponds
    • Avoid the outdoors and dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active
    • Apply insect repellent
    • Keep yourself updated on current mosquito vectored diseases in your area
    • If you cannot remove the standing water, Call Mosquito Control and we can come out and treat it for you. 305-292-7190.
