Handling Mosquitos
Posted on Jul 28th, 2022

1.      Regularly Empty Containers that hold Water.  Standing water serves as an excellent breeding habitat for mosquitos.  Sources include:  flowerpots, old tires, kiddy pools, outside toys, pet bowls, and unused swimming pools, just to name a few.  Remember, thousands of mosquito eggs can be laid in as little as a tablespoon of water.
2.      Learn More from Professionals.  Talk with your own pest control provider on what they recommend for your specific residence.
3.      Learn More by Visiting Websites.  A) Center for Disease Control & Prevention. B) Fresno County Department of Public Health.  C) Fresno Mosquito & Vector Control District.  D) Information can be found online at:  www.fresnomosquito.org (or calling the District at 559.268.6565). E) The internet also has numerous articles on controlling mosquitos with a more natural, organic approach if chemicals are a concern to residents.
