Don't Let Mosquitoes Take a Bite Out of Your Summer

Mosquitoes can be a real nuisance. Luckily, there are things we can all do to take the bite out of mosquito season.

Remember the four Ds:

  • Drain your property of unwanted standing water.
  • Dusk/dawn are the times of day when you should take extra care to protect yourself from their bite.
  • Dress appropriately. Wear light-coloured and loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves to ward off the pests.
  • Defend yourself against mosquito bites by using repellent wisely. Be sure to read the labels first.

If you have mosquito-related questions, call the mosquito control hotline at 604-432-6228. It's operated by Morrow Bioscience Ltd., Metro Vancouver's regional mosquito control contractor. They will visit sites, if requested.

Enjoy a safe summer.
