Prevent your property from becoming a mosquito breeding ground for waterfront property and boat owners

  • Empty containers, tarps and equipment where standing water collects both in your boat and on the deck
  • Empty standing water on boat covers and/or from the hull of your boat
  • Pump out boat bilges to remove standing water
  • Consult a licensed pest control operator for mosquito habitat that cannot be controlled by drainage or other means

NOTE: If you are considering using a pesticide to control mosquitoes, please see the legal requirements.
