Dump and Drain Standing Water

Published on August 09, 2023


After the rain, dump and drain!

Flower pots and saucers, pet food bowls, buckets, tarps, downspouts, and tires are all great places for mosquitoes to lay their eggs.

Check containers around the home for any water that may have collected from recent rains.  Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water and it is important to eliminate their habitat. Dump and drain the standing water often for the best result!

Mosquitoes also lay their eggs in floodplains and wetland areas, we have had a very wet summer which is contributing to high mosquito populations.

Our inspectors are out checking sites and answering service requests.
