Tip of the Month
Posted By kdub on September 25, 2015
This summer, two non-native species of mosquitos have been found in San Diego. The Asian Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) and the Yellow Fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti). Both of these mosquitos are known to carry dengue, yellow fever, Chikungunya and West Nile Virus.
Since mosquitoes love standing water, please take extra care on your balconies to remove excess water from plant saucers after watering, and be sure to empty out any containers that may have collected water after a rain.
