CITY GIVES TIPS FOR PEST PREVENTION

With summer around the corner bringing warmer weather, the city of Henderson is offering tips for homeowners to be protected from pests such as mosquitoes.

The city recommends that people eliminate potential water sources that could serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes such as puddles that habitually return or leaky outdoor faucets. It also suggests monitoring outdoor recycling containers, gutters, pools, ornamental ponds and drainage areas that might collect water.

Mosquitoes prefer slow-moving water in which to lay eggs.

If people are concerned about stagnant water sources or swimming pools that aren’t maintained, they can call 702-267-3950.
