Spring has arrived! Warmer and longer days signal the start of the mosquito season. District employees look forward to addressing your mosquito issues. If you are being bothered by mosquitoes, remember to submit a service request: http://www.fightthebite.net/request-home-service . Now is also a good time to request mosquitofish for your decorative pond, animal water trough, fountain, or anything else that holds water and cannot be dumped http://www.fightthebite.net/request-mosquitofish
Urban water management is critical at this time of year. Late spring rains followed warm temperatures make the perfect combination for mosquitoes to breed. At least once a week remember to look around your yard and empty water containers such as pet dishes, bird baths, fountains, wheelbarrows and flower pots to avoid developing mosquitoes in your own yard. Running the filters on pools and spas will prevent these water sources from producing mosquitoes.
To date we have not seen anyWest Nilevirus activity in either of our counties. Dead birds are a good indicator of where WNV activity may develop later on in the season. If you see a bird, particularly a crow or magpie lacking obvious signs of trauma that has been dead for less than 24 hours, please call 1-877-968-2473. Crows and magpies are particularly susceptible to the disease, so they make excellent early warning sentinels.
As days get longer and you enjoy the outdoors, remember to wear a good mosquito repellent especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active. ALWAYS read the label and follow the directions of the product you are using.
