SPRAYING AREAS

As a resident, there are some things you can do to help control the mosquito population around your home and property:     

1.     Eliminate standing or stagnant water.

2.     Dispose of any tires, bathtubs or buckets, etc.

3.     Keep fresh water in birdbaths.

4.     Clean out rain gutters.

5.     Fill in low spots in your yard that hold water.

ANY OF THESE PLACES ARE IDEAL FOR MOSQUITOES!!!
