  • Water landscape deeply and infrequently—an inch a week is enough! Avoid run-off that creates breeding sites.
  • Check French drains; if water collects, treat with larvicide, i.e. Mosquito Dunks, available at home improvement and garden centers.
  • Check water meter box for leaks and standing water; treat with Mosquito Dunks if needed.
