Rosemead, 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.

May contain: mosquito, animal, invertebrate, insect, spider, and arachnid

 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 Rosemead 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!
