About the City's Mosquito Control Plan
How do I report standing water on City property?
If I find a dead bird, what should I do?
If you find a dead crow or blue jay with no sign of injury, no ants or flies, call 3-1-1 to report the location. Although the City does not collect or test these dead birds, the location information may be helpful in supplementing other data related to West Nike Virus.
When disposing a bird use a glove, an instrument or a plastic bag to pick up the bird and place in the garbage.
Is the City going to spray for mosquitoes?
The City will only spray for mosquitoes as a last resort per the City´s Mosquito Control Plan. Preventing mosquito breeding by eliminating standing water is the most effective way to control mosquitoes.
