On the Farm

flying mosquito

To minimize larval habitat on the farm:

  • Maintain irrigation and runoff ditches, removing silt and vegetation as necessary
  • Cover rain barrels with screening to impede mosquito activity
  • Empty and rinse troughs twice a week
  • Eliminate pockets of rainwater on equipment and tarps
  • Discard tires at an approved facility (or slice or drill holes to prevent water collection)
  • Minimize the creation of ground impressions- tire ruts, hoof prints to a practicable extent
  • Aerate and/or stock small ponds with fish
  • For areas of standing water that cannot be drained use larvicides
