***MOSQUITO CONTROL*** The Tazewell County Health Dept offers the following tips for reducing the number of mosquitos:


1. Remove old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums, bottles or any water holding containers.

2. Fill in or drain low places (puddles, ruts, etc) in the yard.

3. Keep roof gutters free of leaves and other debris.

4. Cover trash containers to keep rainwater out.

5. Repair leaky outside faucets.

6. Empty plastic wading pools at least once a week  and store inside when not in use.

7. Unused swimming pools should be drained and  kept dry during mosquito season.

8. Fill in tree rot holes and hollow stumps that hold  water.

9. Change water in bird baths and plant pots or drip  trays at least once each week.

10. Store boats covered or upside down, or remove  rainwater weekly.

11. Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well trimmed  around the house.

12. Make sure ornamental ponds are stocked with fish  that eat mosquito larvae.

13. Repair window screens.

14. When outdoors in the evening or when mosquitoes  are biting, use personal protective measures to  prevent mosquito bites (proper use of insect  repellent and  appropriate clothing).

See for specific personal protection  recommendations.
