Did you know mosquitoes lay their eggs in containers that have stagnant water? Once laid, mosquitoes can grow from eggs to flying adults in about 7 days!
Eliminating mosquitoes in the water is easier than getting rid of mosquitoes flying around the room.
Removing stagnant water and eliminating sources that can hold water is the most effective, pesticide-free way to prevent mosquitoes in your community. Vector control cannot access everyone's yards and patios to inspect saucers, buckets, recyclable and bottle caps.
We need your help!
So What Can You Do?
Identify sources around your home or apartment complex, and tip out the water and toss out the source. Prevent any water from being stored in an open container. It's that simple!
