Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water and the larvae, known as “wigglers,” mature in the water and then fly off as adults to search for warm-blooded creatures (that means you) to bite.
Here’s what you can do. Check your yard for any standing water, such as flowerpot saucers, garbage pails, children’s wading pools, or blocked gutters etc. For things such as birdbaths or decorative fountains, the water should be checked for “wigglers”, drained and changed regularly.
So do your part in the fight to reduce the number of mosquitoes in the Village, and thoroughly check your yard, especially after a rain, for any containers holding water and dump it out! Mosquitoes transmit disease! Let’s all do out part to control them!
Please share this information with your neighbors, because the less standing water there is to breed in, the fewer mosquitoes there will be to bug us!
