**Logan City’s Environmental Department has begun Mosquito Prevention Treatment. Standing water is prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. To help fight mosquito populations - remove and/or report standing water in yards and neighborhoods. Common sources of standing water are bird baths, pet dishes, flower pot drip trays, ponds, tires, rain gutters, wheelbarrows, wading pools, puddles and ditches, and unused swimming pools. It is important to either change the water in these locations frequently or take measures to prevent them from collecting water in the first place. If you see mosquito larvae, empty the water or call to report standing water near you. For questions or to make a report of mosquitoes or larvae within Logan City Limits, please call Joe Archer, city forester,at (435-716-9749). Mosquitoes may carry West Nile Virus. Residents can protect themselves from West Nile Virus by taking the following precautions: Wear insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors at dawn and dusk; Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors; Avoid mosquito infested areas and limit time out of doors during dawn and dusk.
