The City of Greenville will wrap up its first round of spraying for mosquitoes tonight.
Crews have been spraying throughout the month, in different single-member City Council districts.
Mosquito spraying is scheduled to continue tonight and Tuesday night in District 6.
Any additional spraying is also expected to be conducted geographically using the single-member district map, available on the city’s web site at www.ci.greenville.tx.us/MosquitoSprayMap.
The City of Greenville has recommended the following tips to help reduce the prevalence of mosquitoes in a given area:
— Eliminate standing water around homes, apartments and businesses.
— Keep lawns mowed since mosquitoes are likely to be found in high grass and weeds.
— Keep rain gutters free of leaves and debris to eliminate this as a breeding site.
— Empty water dishes, bird baths, wading pools, buckets, and flower pots that hold water.
— Maintain swimming pools so that water does not become stagnant and attract mosquitoes.
The City of Greenville has also established a web page concerning mosquito control at www.ci.greenville.tx.us/FightTheBite.
