[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Hotline

Mosquito on Skin

Prevent potential breeding sites from mosquitoes!


It’s that time of year again. Everyone is urged to help limit breeding sites for mosquitoes by regularly dumping containers with standing water in them. Did you know it only takes an ounce of water to allow mosquitoes to breed! 


Types of potential breeding sites include old tires, trash cans, planters, 50-gallon drums, backhoe buckets, and unkept drainage areas, just to name a few. They can be found almost anywhere: a nearby vacant lot, a park, picnic, or play area, or even your backyard. 


Do what you can to prevent mosquitoes from breeding and potentially spreading disease. Your help is greatly appreciated! 


For any mosquito issues, call the City’s Mosquito Hotline at 575/541-2547.
