Vector Control Will Begin Treating for Mosquitoes

Starting Saturday June 23, 2018, Vector control will begin treating standing water throughout the city with larvicide. They will then monitor the mosquito traps across the city and start the process of spraying the adult mosquitoes.

Vector Control

Vector Control is asking the public to help them by taking care of your property. Remember the 5 D’s of Defense:

DEET – Use insect repellent containing DEET.
DRESS – Dress in long sleeves and pants when you’re outside.
DAWN, DAYTIME and DUSK – Dawn, Daytime and Dusk are the times of day when mosquitoes are most active. Avoid being outside during these times of day to prevent bites.
DRAIN – Regularly drain standing water, including water that collects in empty cans, tires, buckets, clogged rain gutters and saucers under potted plants. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water.
DOCTOR – Consult a physician if you feel sick after being bitten.
