June 23-29 ‘Mosquito Control’ week
June 23-29 has been declared the 17th annual “National Mosquito Control Awareness Week” by the American Mosquito Control Association.
The AMCA, an international organization of nearly 2,000 public health professionals, has been dedicated to preserving the public’s health and well-being through safe, environmentally sound mosquito control programs since 1935.
During “Mosquito Week” the AMCA’s goal is to educate the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States.
Mosquito season is now here and the AMCA is asking the public to help stop mosquito development by removing any standing water in or around their home or business.
If one must be outside, avoid peak mosquito activity times, wear insect repellant, avoid perfumes and colognes and wear light colored long sleeve shirts and pants.
“It is important to take the necessary precautions and avoid mosquitoes whenever possible,” said Jessie Boudreaux, owner of Cajun Mosquito Control LLC.
Boudreaux reminds all residents once again that removing standing water in or around your home or business after each rainfall will help reduce mosquito breeding for both the residents and neighbors in each community.
