The beginning of the dreaded mosquito season is almost upon us! That means it’s almost time to get your DynaTrap set up and running!

Other tips for preparing for mosquito season:
- Remove any objects that collect standing water such as buckets and old tires

- Clean clogged gutters that mosquitoes may use as a breeding ground
- Use spray repellents while out and about
