Special to the PRESS
From the desk of Laguna Vista City Manager Rolando Vela:
LV Residents and Friends,
The Town will be mosquito spraying the entire community on Tuesday evening starting at 8 p.m.
We are urging residents to do the following:
- Protection against mosquito bites: Take precautions against mosquito bites by reducing outdoor activity during evening and nighttime hours. Residents who are outside during these times should cover their arms and legs and use a mosquito repellent.
- Prevent mosquito breeding: Eliminate standing water to prevent mosquito breeding and the spread of West Nile Virus. Breeding places for mosquitoes include swimming pools that are not kept clean, stagnant ponds, pet watering dishes, birdbaths, potted plants, old tires, empty containers, toys and clogged rain gutters and French drains. Standing water should be eliminated promptly, as mosquitoes can grow from egg to adult in as little as seven days.
We appreciate your assistance on this matter.
