In addition, the County will respond to resident complaints regarding the breeding of mosquitoes in ponds and other bodies of water.

Mosquito bites can be more than just annoying and itchy. They can spread viruses that make you sick or, in rare cases, cause death. The most effective way to avoid getting sick from viruses spread by mosquitoes when at home and during travel is to prevent mosquito bites. See our Mosquito Bite Prevention Tips (PDF).
