Glenn Bailey, Environment Health Manager with the city of Abilene offered up a few suggestions on how to do just that. He says, "The danger comes in the elderly and the immune compromised individuals. So those are the ones to take precautions to avoid mosquitoes."
"A teaspoon full of water that stands for about four or five days can hatch out five hundred mosquitoes. So it is extremely important that folks look around their property and drain any standing water.", explains Bailey.
