Mosquito Prevention & Protection
We want to encourage residents to report areas of standing water, breeding areas / habitats, and when the mosquitoes get uncontrollable. We truly rely on these reports from residents to help identify where the problems lie.
The best way for residents to report their concern is to call the Bite Line at 614-525-2483. This is a voice mail system that has several options. There is general information and an option to leave a message for concerns. This voice mail is checked throughout the day and calls will be returned within 24 hours.
Please visit https://www.myfcph.org/environmental-health/file-a-complaint/ to submit an online request for the area of concern. You will see a tab in the middle of the page about mosquitoes. Click on the link and it will display the "Request Service" form that can be filled out and submitted through the site.
If phone calls are not returned within 24 hours please contact David McAninch.
2018 Mosquito Highlights
National Mosquito Control Awareness Week is June 24 to June 30, 2018.
You can control the mosquito population by emptying containers that could potentially hold water, emptying bird baths, and draining areas on your property that hold water.
Wear insect repellant containing DEET, limit outdoor activity at dusk and dawn, and eliminate standing water around your residence.
