Fight the Bite! Mosquito Prevention and Eradication
Begin in your own backyard Eliminate any standing water. Flower pots, gutters and toys all serve as catch places for stagnant water and need to be emptied regularly. Clean leaves from gutters to prevent the "ideal breeding ground" for mosquitoes. Keep yards trimmed and bushes cut back to stop hiding places for mosquitoes.
Spraying for mosquitos Please be advised, our drivers are not allowed to run the sprayer when people are present. If you are outside when the spray trucks come by, our drivers are instructed to turn the sprayers off. We spray 6 nights per week during breeding season, as weather permits.
Environmental violations are not only unsightly, but they can be serious health and safety hazards. It is against City Ordinance for properties to contain:
Uncollected trash, garbage, litter, or debris
Appliances or furniture in the yard
Auto parts and scrap metal
Grass over 6 inches tall
Fallen trees, stumps, dead trees, and cut brush
