Mosquito Control

Fourth of July is just around the corner, but itchy mosquito bites may already be a problem in your neighborhood.  In honor of the upcoming National Mosquito Control Awareness Week, Passaic County Mosquito Control has tips to help you declare your independence from those pesky blood-suckers. 
 
Pools are open and grills are going, but are you cooking up a breeding ground for mosquitoes?  Standing water and dark clothing are two things that attract them.  Passaic County Mosquito Control recommends you follow the three D’s to keep mosquitoes away:
 
? Drain:  Empty out water containers at least once per week ?
Dress:  Wear long sleeves, long pants, and light-colored, loose-fitting clothing
? Defend:  Properly apply an approved repellent such as DEET, picaridin, IR 3535, or oil of lemon-eucalyptus
