Even though we have selected some of the safest products for this use, common sense dictates that general precautions should taken when using any pesticide. The City of Hutchinson and Clark Mosquito Control want to have a safe and effective mosquito control program this year. Using trained personnel to handle the equipment and insecticides is of utmost importance. The City and Clark Mosquito Control are encouraging your support and cooperation in their efforts.
In addition to this program, you can do several things to reduce local mosquito populations.
Eliminate trash, tires, and containers that may hold water and create breeding sites for mosquitoes.
Store boats covered or upside down.
Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week and store them inside when they are not used.
Keep rain gutters and down spouts in good repair. Make sure no water remains in them after a rain.
Fill depressions in the lawn that hold water.
Keep clean water in pet water bowls, bird baths, plant saucers and trays.
Store pails, barrels, tubs, boats, wheel barrows, etc., upside down.
Keep shrubs, lawns, and weeds trimmed to eliminate shady places for mosquitoes to rest during hot daylight hours.
Keep screens intact and tight-fitting to prevent insects from entering your house.
