With many people staying close to home right now, early season field work such as inspecting breeding sites, larviciding, and trapping/surveillance will be more visible than usual in communities. So be ready to engage!
The Metropolitan Mosquito Control District, serving the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area, recently worked with their local CBS station to feature how their program is operating under COVID-19 restrictions. They stressed the importance of staff protection and prioritizing their work, while reinforcing the simple but highly effective actions residents can take to remove standing water and eliminate potential breeding sites around their properties.
