Fight the Bite
Neighbors: As we all know, mosquitoes are coming, some are already here. As a guidance, please see the following website for tips and information about the prevention and protection from mosquitoes. http://www.texaszika.org/ and http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/index.html.
It will take all homeowners to do their part to watch/react to prevent mosquitoes. Mosquito Dunks, available at Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc. are effective for tanks, ponds, standing water features, etc.
