At Home

flying mosquito

To minimize larval habitat at the home:

  • Clean roof gutters at least annually
  • Remove any unnecessary containers from the property (flower pots/trays, tires, toys, boats, equipment)
  • Drain and rinse birdbaths twice a week
  • Aerate and/or stock ornamental ponds with fish
  • Configure tarps to drain any incident rainwater
  • Use landscaping to minimize standing surface water
  • Close pools when not in use and be aware that pool covers can collect rainwater and provide habitat for mosquitoes as well
  • Patch or drain tree holes
  • For areas of standing water that cannot be drained use larvicides
