Protect yourself this weekend and this summer from Asian Tiger mosquito


May 23, 2018 - They're baaaaack!

Public Works’ Environmental Services Division is asking residents to monitor their yards and dump any standing water to help reduce the Asian tiger mosquito population.

The most prolific nuisance mosquito in the region, the Asian tiger thrives in recent rainy conditions and high temperatures.

According to Environmental Services, the mosquito has adapted to finding water around people, their homes and workplaces. The species is also active during daylight and dawn/dusk, and they bite typically during the day.

Because the mosquito tends to rest at night, that’s the best time to eliminate the places they breed. Inspect your property at least weekly and dump any standing water you find around the house. Toys, buckets, birdbaths, flower pot trays, tarps, and spare tires are some of the most commonly seen mosquito habitats.

Environmental Services also recommends that residents use mosquito repellent when outdoors, wear light colors, loose clothing and long sleeves.

Please call Hampton’s 311 services (757-727-8311) if you have any questions or concerns. Environmental Services will also inspect and assess your property if requested.
