A few facts...

Mosquitoes do not develop in grass or shrubbery although adult mosquitoes will rest in those areas during daylight hours.

Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite, males feed only on plant juices.

Female mosquitoes are attracted to heat and carbon dioxide to hosts such as humans, mammals and birds.

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant, standing fresh water often found around the home. Common places are untended birdbaths, buckets, flower pots, anything that can hold water for several days.

Mosquitoes can multiply whenever water stands for four to seven days. Eliminating even small amounts of water helps eliminate mosquitoes.

To help avoid being bitten...

Repair any holes in screens  and screen doors.

Mosquitoes are most active between sunset and sunrise, minimize outdoor activities during those hours.

Avoid mosquito prone areas such as areas with heavy underbrush or standing water.

Wear clothing that covers as much skin as possible.

Consider spraying clothing with repellent since they can and will bite through clothes.

On bare skin consider spraying repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus,

Stay close to someone the mosquitoes like more than you.

A continued reminder...

Camping season is here and with it, comes more children out playing, more people out walking and more traffic in the park.

Speed limits, stop signs and speed bumps are all designed to help keep everyone safe. Please obey the speed limits and stop at the stop signs.

The speed limit in the park is 10 MPH with the exception of single lanes being only 5 MPH.

Going slower also helps keep the dust down as things dry out, which everyone appreciates.
