[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Safety

Now that summer is here, be sure you are on the lookout for places mosquitoes can breed. The heat accelerates the risk of the species of mosquitoes that carries WNV. They don’t require but about a bottle cap’s worth of water to lay eggs, breed and hatch into pesky adult-biting bugs. So, pick up litter, frequently dump out standing water, and for water that can’t be dumped, use mosquito dunks (available for free at City Hall, just ask at the desk). Also, remember to replace screens with holes to keep them out of the house, and wear lightweight long sleeves and pants at dawn and dusk when the adult female mosquitoes are most likely to be out looking for you.
