More mosquito spraying tonight

GREENVILLE — The City of Greenville will continue spraying for mosquitoes tonight.

The spraying will be conducted tonight and Thursday night in City Council District 5. Additional spraying is being 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 also scheduled in 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.
