Everyone should be diligent about removing stagnant water from their properties.
Residents are encouraged to survey their property for mosquito breeding habitat:
- Containers should be emptied every 5 days to prevent adult mosquitoes from emerging
- For water in containers which cannot be emptied, homeowners can apply a bacteria based pesticide,
which kills the larvae, but can be used around fish, pets, and children
