Control & Prevention

Mosquitoes breed in standing and stagnant water, especially water that is shaded from the sun. They can breed in as little as 2 inches of standing water! Residents of St. Johns County can do their part to help by eliminating all standing water. Take a look at these pictures and see if any of these items can be found in your yard.  Also, check out this video.  It will give you insight to other sources of standing water.
