FORT SMITH – The City of Fort Smith is encouraging all area residents to do their part in eliminating mosquito habitats around their homes.
Homeowners can help by taking the following steps:
- Eliminate standing water in rain gutters, old tires, buckets, plastic covers, toys, and other containers where mosquitoes can breed.
- Empty and change the waters in bird baths, fountains, wading pools, rain barrels, and potted plant trays at least once a week.
- Keep swimming pool waters treated and circulating.
