San Dimas, Wipe Out Mosquitoes This Winter ❄️

Bundle up! This winter comes with a frosty bite. 

May contain: person, walking, people, clothing, coat, jacket, jeans, pants, child, female, girl, glove, footwear, shoe, animal, canine, dog, mammal, and pet

With the summer heat long gone, it's easy to think that mosquitoes are taking time off this chilly holiday season. But don't be deceived; we can assure you that mosquitoes are still around, and have left behind some gifts this winter.

Check your yard for contiainers that capture mosquito-breeding water from rainstorms, sprinklers, etc., and tip them out weekly!

Did you know that Aedes mosquitoes can lay eggs that "hibernate" months after being laid? All they need is stagnant water to hatch and thrive all year long!
May contain: food, fruit, plant, and produce

Also known as time-capsules, Aedes eggs laid in the summer and fall can easily hatch in water that settles after a winter storm, or simply from watering plants. So while it looks like mosquito numbers decrease during the cold season, stagnant water is a major factor that can increase them.

Wiping out mosquitoes this winter is easy:

Give your warm, holiday home a weekly Tip and Toss 

 Drain out any stagnant water and toss containers that hold mosquito-breeding water!

Get rid of "hibernating" eggs 

Wipe down surfaces that frequently hold water and harbor mosquito eggs. A wet sponge or towel should work a winter wonder.
