The City of Northwood will be spraying for Mosquitoes ONCE a Week for the Season
Here are some helpful tips to rid mosquitoes of their breeding grounds around your home:
Mosquitoes require water for two important life cycle stages – Hatching into Larva and Developing into pupa- so by eliminating any and all standing water greatly reduces their population. This will leave them no place to hatch their eggs, whether it is 10 or 100.
Common rainwater pooling occurs in, on or around buckets, gutters, old tires, refuse, plastic tarps, containers, birdbaths, pools, rain barrels, potted plants and similar items. Store anything capable of catching rainwater upside down to eliminate any standing water. Drill drainage holes in items that cannot be stored upside down. Clean gutters and drainage systems to stop water from pooling. Fix leaky outdoor water faucets. Treat swimming pools and keep the water circulating. Keep tarps and covers pulled tight to stop any pooling. Replace water in birdbaths 2-3 times per week. Fill in ditches with dirt. If ditches are for drainage, make sure proper fill is used for adequate drainage.
