Fight the Bite

Did you know that mosquitoes breed in pools of water? After short rains and especially heavy rains, make sure to tip over any garden decorations, watering cans or tires to empty water out to avoid assisting mosquito breeding grounds.

If you have tires you need to dispose of, you take them to Green Guy Recycling for proper disposal!
