🌧️Rain Barrels! A GREAT way to capture sky juice and have extra water on hand.

🙏🏽Let’s be sure our rain barrels don't breed mosquitoes by covering them with mesh screening and keeping the screen tight and above the waterline.

🦟 If the screening sags into the water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs and turn reservoirs into breeding sites.

✅ So check your barrels frequently to make sure the mesh is tight and free of holes.

💡For more information, ring Green VI at 346-4040 anytime.

💧💧❗️Yet again, flooding from heavy rainfall has increased the number of Aedes Tortilis mosquitoes. They're not known to spread disease, but they are aggressive biters and can fly long distances from breeding sites. They have large, dark bodies and a single white stripe on their legs.
🦟 Please❗️Remove all the standing water and water catchments that you can and ring the BugOut Team at 340-1853 anytime if you need guidance.
