Mosquito Awareness Week

Mesa County Health Department and the Grand River Mosquito Control District team up in observance of National Mosquito Awareness Week.

The groups want all Mesa County Residents to look at their property to see what they can do to reduce any mosquito breeding habitats. This is because female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. It only takes about seven to ten day before the eggs become grown adults.

Some examples of prime breeding grounds are clogged rain gutters, bird baths, standing irrigation waters, and wading pools. These areas should be cleaned out or the water should be removed every two or three days.
