Thunderstorms

Spring and summer thunderstorms can sometimes produce enough rain to cause mosquito breeding in neighborhood standing-water habitats.  When this occurs, check your yard for the following habitats and dump water:

  • Any containers holding water such as:  old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums, or bottles
  • Swimming pool covers filled with water
  • Drains, ditches, and culverts full of weeds and trash preventing water from draining properly
  • Eave troughs clogged with leaves and other debris
  • Uncovered trash containers

Don't Forget

  • Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week and store indoors when not in use.
  • Change the water in the birdbaths and plant pots or drip trays at least once a week.
  • Store boats/canoes covered or upside down, or remove rain water weekly.
  • Repair leaky pipes or leaky outside faucets.
  • Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well-trimmed around the house so adult mosquitoes will not hide there during daytime hours.
