Tennessean.com: Nashville Health Department Monitors Early Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes have arrived in Middle Tennessee earlier than they usually do, according to the Metro Health Department.

Blame the above average temperatures and rain.

The department is monitoring areas of standing water in Davidson County looking for mosquito larvae and applying a granular larvicide to kill larvae.

To reduce the mosquito population, residents should empty standing water in flower pots, buckets, plastic covers, toys or any other container that may collect water. Change the water in birdbaths, fountains, wading pools and rain barrels at least once a week if not more often.
