A bit of history about Northwood...

Northwood can trace its origins back to when Wood County's nineteenth commonwealth, Ross Township, was enacted on April 18, 1874.  It was not until September 8, 
1962 that the entire area of Ross Township would become incorporated into the Village of Northwood.  The Ross Township News editor, Larry Brough, suggested the name "Northwood" because the village was located in the most northwestern part of Wood County.  The Village of Northwood officially became the City of Northwood on January 1, 1982.

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.
