The rise of vector-borne disease such as West Nile Virus has again alerted the public to the need for effective
mosquito control and mosquito treatment programs.  Mosquitoes are likely responsible for more deaths than
any other single cause outside of the giant asteroid.   They are the only known carriers of the disease agents
causing malaria, yellow fever, dengue, and several types of encephalitis.  All of those diseases have been
common in the southeastern United States in the past, however, extensive mosquito control programs have
eliminated all, except for occasional outbreaks of encephalitis.

Outside of disease, mosquitoes are also a public nuisance for the way they harass adults and children.  Many
outdoor recreational areas become unusable during mosquito season.  While there are many different types of
mosquitoes, only a few are pests to man and require a treatment program.  These few species of mosquitoes
which require control programs do more than their fair share of pestering people.

  • Old tires, cans, pails, and other water holding containers are ideal breeding sites.  Store them upside
    down or get rid of them.

  • Fill in or drain low spots in your yard.

  • Keep ditches, drains, and culverts clear of weeds and trash so that water will drain properly.

  • Drain water from tarps or plastic sheeting which cover wood piles, boats, etc.

  • Keep eaves troughs clean of leaves and debris.

  • Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week and store them inside when not in use.  Unused
    backyard swimming pools may also create breeding problems.

  • Change bird bath water weekly.

  • Fill in tree rot holes and hollow stumps with sand or concrete.

  • Keep boats/canoes covered or upside down

  • Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well trimmed so that adult mosquitoes will not hide there in the
    daytime.

  • Use a fine mesh screen on top of rain barrels so that female adults cannot reach the water surface to lay
    eggs.
