How do I get rid of Aedes mosquitoes in my yard?
- Mosquitoes only need about one cup of water to breed. The Health District recommends eliminating breeding sites around your yard. Toss out standing water from flower pots, tires, wading pools, pet dishes, and ornamental ponds and bird baths.
- Check irrigation sites, drains, rain gutters for standing water.
- The CDC www.cdc.gov and the Health District www.SNHD.info have information about eliminating mosquito breeding sites and other prevention measures on their websites.
