Eliminate standing water to curtail mosquitoes

From page A4 | May 14, 2013 |

With recent rains and an increase in area temperatures, the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District reminds the public to “drain after the rain” to prevent mosquitoes.

Wet weather followed by very warm temperatures creates an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.

“The latest rains have left stagnant water and it’s important for everyone to do their part,” district manager David Brown said.

“Controlling mosquitoes now will go a long way later in the season, so we urge everyone to inspect their yard and dump out water from household containers such as buckets, flower pots, bird baths and old tires that may breed mosquitoes.

“Hot temperatures accelerate the mosquito life cycle,” he added. “So if you notice more mosquitoes during your outdoor morning or evening activities, please remember to protect yourself from bites by always wearing an effective mosquito repellent.”

The warm weather in the weeks ahead also means an increased risk of West Nile virus. The disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes that feed on infected birds, has been established in our area since 2004.

The public is encouraged to help the district by reporting all dead birds — especially crows, jays or magpies — and squirrels. Reports can be made by calling 877-968-2473 or online at www.westnile.ca.gov.
