La Puente, Spring into Cleaning, Stops Mosquitoes Biting!
Spring showers ☔️ + Warm weather 🌞 = Mosquitoes 🦟
Trim plants for a breezy, sun-filled, & mosquito-free yard! 🌷
Free your home of mosquito-breeding containers and wear repellent 🏡
Warm weather allows mosquitoes to breed, bite, and blossom in our neighborhoods. This is when fatal diseases like West Nile virus can be transmitted to humans.
La Puente, Let the Spring (Mosquito) Cleaning Commence
As springtime grows around us, the crisp outdoors are blossoming to life-- mosquitoes included. 🦟 Keep mosquitoes and their diseases out of your home with 3 easy tricks.
1. Tip and Toss Stagnant Water Weekly
Did you know that mosquitoes need 7 days in water to grow into biting adults?
Scan your yard each week for water-capturing containers and tip them out! 💦
2. Use Repellent
Enjoy your spring festivities, like walking at La Puente City Park, without worrying about getting bit outside.
There are only 4 repellents recommended by the CDC! 🌼
One mosquito bite can allow a mosquito to lay over 200 eggs at a time! 🥚
3. Spark Some Spring Inspiration
Create a healthy community for yourself, and your loved ones.
Gather your neighbors and join us in Biting mosquitoes Back in your community!
