Do your Part for Mosquito Control: a message from Lehigh County Conservation District
With the on-set of the warmer weather, The Lehigh County Conservation District would like to remind residents about the importance of Mosquito Control. Small changes can go a long way to protect public health during peak transmission season.
Some easy ways to try and mosquito-proof your home are:
- Keep back yards clean of debris & artificial containers
- Keep working screens on doors and windows
- Wear long sleeves and repellant when going outdoors
The Lehigh County Conservation District’s Vector Borne Disease Control Program is fully operational and here to serve you again in 2021. The program will be conducting field operations to monitor the mosquito population in our area beginning May 1st until October when the potential threat to public health ends.
