Mosquito Breeding Areas Around The Home
Emptying or removing these common sites of mosquito larvae prevents adult mosquitoes from developing.
Most of the mosquito complaints during the summer months in towns and cities are caused by mosquitoes coming from the artificial and natural container sites listed below. These sites are the responsibility of the home or property owner. Use the "TIP OR TOSS" method of management to prevent mosquito breeding in most containers:
Tip (or rinse) water from these containers at least once a week
Toss (take to landfill) any containers not needed. Be responsible!
Use the following checklist of containers that commonly hold water to eliminate mosquito breeding areas around your house.
