Learn How to Protect Yourself Against Mosquitos this Summer

Every year the Norwalk Health Department launches a larvicide application program to reduce the mosquito population and reduce mosquito-born disease, and this week the program was launched. Larvicide was given to "standing water locations" around the city to prevent mosquito eggs from hatching. As well as the larvicide, residents are encouraged to protect themselves, by applying mosquito repellent before going outside, install window or door screens, covering pools with chlorine or filters, keeping gutters free of debris, and draining water from old tires, birdbaths, pools, and garbage cans.
