IT’S MOSQUITO TIME AGAIN

DUE TO ALL THE RAIN THIS YEAR, MOSQUITO’S ARE THICKER AND BIGGER THAN EVER. THE TOWN IS IN THE PROCESS OF SPRAYING ALLEYS AND THE PUBLIC PARK AREAS.

DO YOUR PART BY MOWING YOUR LAWN AND ALLEY REGULARLY AND REMOVE STANDING WATER WHERE MOSQUITO’S BREED.

MAKE SURE TO USE MOSQUITO SPRAY ON YOUR CHILDREN AND YOURSELF BEFORE GOING OUTSIDE FOR EXTENDED PERIODS AND TREAT YOUR PETS BECAUSE MOSQUITO’S CAN CAUSE HEART WORMS FOR ANIMALS.

KEEP YOUR FAMILY AND PETS SAVE BY DOING YOUR PART!
