Description:Behind this dwelling was an old chicken house, which made for an excellent “resting station” for adult mosquitoes. You’ll also note a scrap wood pile, which might have included items that could contain standing water that would also act as breeding environments for mosquitoes.
Mosquito breeding sites can be anywhere. Neighborhood clean-up days can be organized by civic or youth organizations to pick up containers from vacant lots and parks, and to encourage people to keep their yards free of standing water. Mosquitoes don't care about fences, so it's important to control breeding sites throughout the neighborhood.
