STORMWATER NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
The City of Duluth will begin our Mosquito Control Program in April. This is the time of year that we try to prevent the rapid outgrowth of mosquito breeding in our community’s stormwater infrastructure system. We have had an unusually warm winter, and with the springtime rains, there is a need to stay on top of mosquito control. Our staff will be inserting mosquito “bricks” into the street drain inlets and ponds as part of the preventative measures.
Interesting Tips to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes:
- You are more likely to become a target for mosquitoes if you consume bananas.
- Light colors are less attractive to mosquitoes than dark colors.
- Mosquitoes dislike citronella because it irritates their feet.
- Eliminating standing water on your property reduces your risk of being bitten.
