During the summer and early fall months, it is important to be aware of the various tips you and your household can use to protect yourselves and your neighbors from the harmful effects of mosquito bites.
Mosquitoes breed in stagnant, standing fresh water oftentimes found around the home. In light of this, it is important to tip over things that hold standing water on your property and toss trash and debris in your yard that can collect water. It is also important to protect yourself and your kids against mosquito bites by wearing protective clothing and using EPA-registered insect repellents. We all can do things to help "fight the bite" throughout the Town of Vinton this year!
