Protecting yourself from Mosquitoes

Protecting Yourself from Mosquitoes

The Building and Codes Department wants to remind all our residents important information regarding mosquitoes as Spring will be here soon.

Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Areas

Mosquitoes breed in standing water. So, the first most important step in controlling them is to find all the places where water can accumulate on your property. You can help reduce the mosquito population around your home since some mosquitoes, such as the Asian tiger mosquito or the Southern house mosquito, typically fly only a few hundred feet from their breeding areas.

Get rid of and prevent standing water:

  • Get rid of places where adult mosquitoes can find cool, dark, and damp areas to rest by mowing the lawn, trimming shrubbery, and cutting down weeds and vines, such as ivy, in the yard and next to the house.
  • Clear out weeds, leaves, dirt, and other debris from pipes, especially those under a driveway. Make sure that water does not stand inside or near the ends of the pipe.
  • Clean out rain gutters and downspouts regularly. Clogged gutters are one of the most overlooked breeding sites for mosquitoes around homes.
  • Empty and turn over containers that hold water such as cans, jars, drums, bottles, flower pots, buckets, children’s toys, wheel barrows, old appliances, plastic sheeting or tarps used to cover objects like grills or swimming pools, etc.
  • Drain or fill any low places, such as potholes, on your property where water collects and stands for more than 5 to 7 days.
