[ARCHIVED] Homeowners are encouraged to increase their role in fighting mosquitoes

Artificial habitat around a home is a source for mosquitoes to reproduce. Identifying objects such as these around the home that may contain water is important and can provide immediate relief. Primary sources around a home are listed following. .

? Discarded containers, buckets, toys left outside
? Wading pools, unused swimming pools, pool covers
? Bird baths, ornamental ponds,
? Clogged roof gutters, garden irrigation barrels
? Unused uncovered boats, wheelbarrows, ceramic pots

The simplest and most economical solution is to empty water from containers and remove it or render it so that it will not hold water again.

Also, there are retail products that the homeowner can purchase at a lawn and garden store to place in the water that will inhibit mosquito growth.
