Mosquito Spraying in Cuyahoga Falls Tonight

Spraying to control the population of mosquitoes takes place Wednesday night.

The Summit County Health District is scheduled to spray for mostquito population control Wednesday night in Cuyahoga Falls.

Spraying will start at 8:30 p.m.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency offers the following tips to keeping mosquitoes away:

  • Remove their habitat, where they live and breed, by eliminating standing water. Mosquitoes often breed inside objects with standing water like rain gutters, old tires, buckets, plastic covers and toys.
  •  It’s encouraged to empty bird baths, fountains, wading pools and potted plant trays at least once a week to destroy any habitats the insects might develop.
  •  If you have a swimming pool in your yard, keep the water treated and circulating.

How do you prevent those pesky mosquito bites?

  • Use EPA-registered mosquito repellents and follow the directions on the label carefully.
  •  If there’s a mosquito disease warning in effect, stay inside during the evening hours.
  •  Replace your outdoor lights with yellow “bug” lights. While the yellow lights aren’t repellent, they do tend to attract fewer mosquitoes than ordinary lights.
  •  Check your screen windows and doors to see if they are bug tight.

Those will questions regarding the health district’s mosquito control program may call (330) 923-8856.
