Tips to Rid Neeld Estate of Mosquito Breeding Sites

  • Clean rain gutters to allow water to flow freely.

  • Remove old tires or drill drainage holes in tires used for playground equipment.

  • Store plastic wading pools inside or turn them upside down when not in use.

  • Turn over or remove clay pots and plastic containers.

  • Dispose of all empty beverage containers, plastic wrappers, discarded toys, etc.

  • Check for trapped water in plastic or canvas tarps used to cover boats, pools, etc.  Arrange the tarp to drain the water.

  • Pump out bilges in boats. Turn canoes and small boats upside down for storage.

  • Replace water in bird baths at least twice a week.

  • Remove pet food and water dishes that are not being used.

  • Flush livestock water troughs twice a week.

  • Don't leave garbage can lids lying upside down. Be sure water does not collect in the bottom of garbage cans.

  • Flush water in the bottom of plant holders twice a week.

  • Fix dripping outside water faucets.

  • Turn wheelbarrows upside down when stored outside.

  • Check around construction sites or do-it-yourself improvements to ensure that proper backfilling and grading prevent drainage problems.

  • Check ornamental ponds, tree holes and water-holding low areas for mosquito larvae. 
    Call the nearest Mosquito Control Office (see below) if you find, or suspect, mosquito larvae are present. “Mosquito Fish” are available that will naturally control larva in ponds.

  • If ditches do not flow and contain stagnant water for one week or longer, they can produce large numbers of mosquitoes. Report such conditions to a Mosquito Control Office.
    Do not attempt to clear these ditches because they may be protected by wetland regulations.

Contact the Mosquito Control at the County’s Department of General Services, 410-535-1600 or 301-855-1243 or Mosquito Control Section of the Maryland Department of Agriculture nearest you for additional assistance and advice.

CALVERT COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL PROGRAM
 Calvert County will be starting their abatement of nuisance and vector (disease carrier) mosquitoes on May 1st.  This includes biological control methods for larvae at breeding sites, and also spraying for adult mosquitoes, on an as needed basis only.  This is determined by specimen count using mosquito lamp traps within the community.  The spraying is done in accordance with EPA regulations and uses permethrin which is not suppose to be harmful to humans or to pets, but cannot be sprayed near ponds with fish or near beehives. The spraying generally will be once or twice a week when the mosquitoes are bad. 

IMPORTANT :  ANYONE WHO DOES NOT WANT SPRAYING AT THEIR HOME, PLEASE ADVISE ME, EITHER BY E-MAIL OR BY TELEPHONE, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO I CAN PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION TO THE COUNTY. 
PLEASE PROVIDE A REASON ( EXAMPLE: health issues, pond with fish, beehive, etc.)
