It’s time to prepare for the mosquito abatement season. Logan City Conservation Officer Emily Malik says mosquito control begins personally by eliminating sources for standing water around your home and neighborhood.
“That can be in flower pot drip trays, that could be in kiddie pools, tires, or different things like that which are laying around your property,” Malik explains. “If residents can make sure that water is changed frequently, like in the case of bird baths or kid swimming pools, that can really make a big difference.”
She says if you see mosquito larvae, empty the water or call to report standing water near you. The number to call is (435) 716-9749. Malik says residents who would like to be contacted prior to the city’s spraying in their neighborhood, or to be on the “do not spray” list, should go online and fill out a form.
