[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Control Team going door-to-door to offer tips

July 24, 2015 - Hampton’s Mosquito Control Team will begin going door-to- door next week to offer yard inspections, tips, and advice on reducing the number of mosquitoes around your home. They will also talk about the best ways to protect yourself from mosquitoes.

The focus will be on the Asian Tiger mosquito and other problem species. The goal is to improve the quality of the outdoor environment around homes and neighborhoods, said Chris DeHart, team manager.

The best way to combat the Asian Tiger mosquito is to survey your property weekly and dump all standing rainwater, eliminating potential breeding areas, DeHart said.

Team technicians will start with areas that have already been hit hard by mosquitoes this summer, based on the high number of calls to 311 and the results of regular field surveillance. Wythe, Southampton, Phoebus, Buckroe, Northampton and the Weaver Road areas are at the top of the schedule.
