You can help reduce the number of mosquitoes – and the nuisance and health risks associated with them – by eliminating standing water (e.g. puddles, water on tarps) from your construction site. If that isn’t possible, using mosquito control products like Mosquito Dunks is the next best option.
Stagnant water is the breeding ground for mosquitoes. Eliminating it is the best way to control mosquitoes. Mosquito Dunks and similar products are a good option if standing water can’t be eliminated – they float in water and slowly release a larvae-killing chemical into the water that kills baby mosquitoes (larvae). The dunks are poisonous to mosquitoes but do not harm humans or animals that may drink the water, like birds or dogs.
Your crews and neighbors will thank you. Fight the bite!
