The presence of mosquitoes used to just be a nuisance, but these days mosquitoes have become a vessel for diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, and now Zika.

According to Science Daily, (26 January 2016), dengue, chikungunya and Zika is being spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. This greatly increases the cost-effectiveness of doing high-quality, thorough mosquito control. The Aedes aegypti feeds almost exclusively on humans and bites primarily during the daytime.

Controlling the mosquitoes in and around your Healthy Environment is now a must. You cannot afford to let these disease carrying insects breed and infect you. According to The American Mosquito Control Association the three areas to address are Drain, Dress, and Defend.


Many mosquito problems in your neighborhood are likely to come from water-filled containers that you, the resident, can help to eliminate. All mosquitoes require water in which to breed.

  • Be sure to drain any standing water around your house
  • Dispose of any tires. Tires can breed thousands of mosquitoes
  • Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers
  • Clear roof gutters of debris
  • Clean pet water dishes regularly
  • Check and empty children’s toys
  • Repair leaky outdoor faucets.

  • Change the water in bird baths at least once a week
  • Canoes and other boats should be turned over
  • Avoid water collecting on pool covers
  • Empty water collected in tarps around the yard or on woodpiles
  • Plug tree holes
  • Even the smallest of containers that can collect water can breed hundreds to thousands of mosquitoes. They don't need much water to lay their eggs. (bottles, barrels, buckets, overturned garbage can lids, etc.)


Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing.

Some of the 176 mosquito species are attracted to dark clothing and some can bite through tight-fitting clothes.

When practical, wear long sleeves and pants.


Choose a mosquito repellent that has been registered by the Environmental Protection Agency. Registered products have been reviewed, approved, and pose minimal risk for human safety when used according to label directions.
