Are you ready for mosquito season? The City of Corinth is! As temperatures warm up, those pesky mosquitoes will start to emerge. Residents are encouraged to do their part in eliminating potential breeding grounds around their home and yard. Common mosquito breeding grounds include: bird baths, gutters, planter basins, water troughs, pet bowls, old tires, trashcan lids, and rainwater collection containers. These areas should be checked weekly, and all standing water should be eliminated.
For larger bodies of water like pools, ponds, and drainage ditches, the City will once again provide free mosquito larvicide, or “dunks” to Corinth residents. This environmentally-safe larvicide specifically targets and eliminates mosquito larvae when placed in standing water for up to 45 days. Dunks can be picked up at the Public Works building located at 1200 North Corinth Street.
As part of the Mosquito Abatement Program, the City has begun weekly testing in public areas. There have not been any positive test results for West Nile Virus in Corinth thus far in 2019.
The testing sites are as follows:
Visit the City’s West Nile Virus webpage regularly for the most up-to-date information, and weekly test results.
Information will also be posted on the City’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter account.
Help us fight the bite, and keep your city safe from West Nile!
