City starts mosquito spraying

GREENVILLE — The City of Greenville began spraying for mosquitoes Wednesday night and intends to continue to do so for the next few weeks.

The spraying started in City Council District 1, which covers the southeast corner of the city. The spraying will continue in the district tonight, weather permitting.

Additional spraying will be conducted geographically using the single-member district map, available on the city’s  web site at www.ci.greenville.tx.us/MosquitoSprayMap.

Mosquito spraying is scheduled for District 1 tonight, District 2 next Monday and Tuesday, District 3 on May 8-9, District 4 on May 13-14,  District 5 on May 15-16 and District 6 on May 20-21.

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.
