What Can I Do To Reduce Mosquitoes In My Yard?


You and your neighbors can help us in our mission to control the house mosquito by making every possible effort to eliminate sources of standing water around your home or place of business.

Some of the things you can do are: 
  • Dispose of all containers that can hold water. Store those you want to save by turning upside down, or punch holes in the bottom so water drains out.
  • Clean roof gutters and drainage ditches.
  • Stock ornamental ponds with fish.
  • Change water in birdbaths, fountains, and pet dishes weekly.
  • Make sure septic, air conditioning, and other water tanks are sealed with screened vents.
  • Empty wading pools when not is use and keep swimming pools clean and filtered.
  • Make sure that boats are covered or that water drains out of them completely. Store small boats upside down.
  • Flush sump pumps weekly.
  • Maintain screening to exclude mosquitoes from house or business.
