What is the city doing to prevent the spread of illnesses caused by mosquitos?
Mosquitoes are controlled on public property by eliminating the breeding source, applying pesticides to stagnant water and spraying as necessary for adult mosquitoes. The Vector Control Program does not treat private property for insect (or rodent) problems.
