Description:Caption:
This image depicts someone emptying a bucket of water in an outdoor setting. The mosquitoes that spread Zika, and other viruses like dengue and chikungunya, lay eggs near water. To control mosquitoes, it is important to empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water, such as tires, buckets, planters, flowerpot saucers, and pools.
Additional Information:
“Tightly cover water storage containers - like buckets, cisterns, and rain barrels - so that mosquitoes can’t get inside and lay eggs. If the container doesn’t have a lid, use wire mesh smaller than an adult mosquito. You can also use larvicides to kill young mosquitoes in large water containers as long as this water won’t be used for drinking, and won’t be covered or dumped out.”
