Mosquito control resources from the UF/IFAS PIE Center
Did you know that common household and yard items that hold water—tires, buckets, planters, trash containers and flowerpot saucers—are ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes? In an effort to share this and other mosquito control facts, the UF/IFAS PIE Center has created a “Prevent & Protect” webpage and resources to provide information and tips to Florida residents. (For the items mentioned above, weekly emptying and scrubbing, covering completely and getting rid of what’s no longer being used are recommended.) Learn more.
