Mosquito Week – a chance for everyone to make a contribution by introducing a comprehensive DIY mosquito control program that incorporates not only a proven trapping system like Mega-Catch’s™ to reduce mosquito numbers but other sensible control measures as well.
- Eliminate standing water in low spots, ditches and similar areas
- Empty receptacles that collect water (e.g. bird baths, pot plant saucers)
- Reduce breeding sites by keeping grass mown and gutters free of debris
- When outdoors wear light colored clothing which is less attractive to some mosquito species
- Use insect repellents. The most effective repellents according the CDC contain one of the following EPA registered active ingredients; DEET, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus.
