As we all know, mosquitoes have decided they too enjoy living in Glacier Ranch through the summer. To help keep your families and neighbors safe and comfortable, we ask that each home owner does their part to help control the problem.
- Find and remove any puddles of water or standing water around your home to reduce breeding sites.
- Wipe out your bird-bath every few days. The eggs can get stuck to the bottom and survive dry periods.
- Maintain your children’s swimming pool to prevent mosquito breeding.
- Maintain tall grasses and keep ditches in front of your home as mowed as possible.
Efforts are being made to mow down as much of the long common area grasses as possible, and the county is planning on targeted spraying operations as weather permits. Hopefully with everyone’s effort, we can make this summer more healthy for everyone.
