 Spray Date:  Public Service Announcement

 Passaic County Mosquito Control would like to remind all residents there are things you can do to help control mosquitoes. Spraying for adult mosquitoes is being conducted as needed this year but your efforts can make a big difference. By following these simple steps you can reduce both the amount of pesticide applied and your risk of contracting disease transmitted by mosquitoes. And you’ll enjoy being outside more too:

 

 

 

 

· Properly dispose of unwanted containers (tires, buckets, cans, etc.)

· Change water in birdbaths and wading pools at least weekly

· Make sure rain gutters are properly maintained
 

· Remove any debris (plastic containers, wrappers, cups, soda cans, etc.) that

   may be hidden behind bushes or shrubs in your yard

· Make sure any toys left outdoors are not holding water
 

· Make sure flower pots do not hold water in the base for more than two or three days
 

· Properly maintain swimming pools, covers, and water-proof tarps

 

Urban and suburban areas are particularly at risk during late summer from mosquitoes that lay eggs in artificial containers. For updated information please visit the County Health website at www.pcdh.org or contact  Mosquito Control at 973-305-5754. Thank you. Stay healthy and enjoy the rest of your summer!
