Over 40 different species of mosquitoes exist in Illinois. They all need water in their early stages.

Here’s what we can do.

  • Throw away all trash that can hold water.
  • Clean rain gutters to prevent water from standing.
  • Change water in bird baths at least once a week.
  • Screen rain barrels with 16 mesh screen
  • Stock ornamental ponds with gold fish.
  • Stack pails, barrels, etc. upside down.
