Mosquito Control Information

Summer is a time of year for outdoor activities and fun in the sun.  All of the outdoor activities make us more susceptible to the sting of mosquitoes. Recent coverage of the Zika virus has made of more aware of these pesky insects. 
 
 
Mosquitoes tend to lay their eggs in standing water.  It only takes a few days for the eggs to hatch and mosquitoes to be present.  Please be cognizant of standing water and plants or landscaping that holds water like the bromeliad.
