Reno County, Kan – June 13, 2022 – Recent rains and flooding have made conditions ideal for increased mosquito numbers. Now is the time to begin minimizing and eliminating the mosquito breeding grounds on your property. 

While supplies last, there are free larvicide mosquito dunks and directions for proper usage available to all Reno County residents at the Reno County Health Department, 209 West 2nd Avenue, and at local municipalities. The Health Department is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with KDHE, recommend removing standing water where mosquitoes can lay their eggs by emptying items that hold water (tires, buckets, planters, tools, pools, birdbaths, flowerpot saucers, trash containers). If the water cannot be emptied, you can use larvicide mosquito dunks in the water. 

To prevent mosquito bites, the CDC recommend using Environmental Protection Agency registered insect repellants (https://www.epa.gov/insect-repellents), wearing long sleeves and pants, using screens on doors and windows that will be open, and if you are camping and sleeping outdoors, consider using a mosquito bed net. 

For more information about the free mosquito dunks, please contact the Reno County Health Department at 620-694-2900. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at www.cdc.gov to learn more tips for preventing mosquito bites.
