After a rainy weekend, and with more rain in the forecast for this week, the Trumbull Health Department encourages residents to take precautions and to be vigilant in preventing mosquito breeding areas around the home.
Mosquitoes need very little water to breed. Remove standing water in wheelbarrows, tires, bird baths, and garbage can lids. There are many different types of mosquitos and they carry different types of diseases. The two mosquito diseases of concern for Connecticut residents are West Nile virus and Zika virus.
