GALION -- Weather permitting, the City of Galion will conduct mosquito spraying on Monday and Tuesday. If crews are unable to spray on one of those days, Wednesday will be a makeup day.
Spraying will begin after 10 p.m. each night. Residents should close their windows and keep children and pets indoors during spraying.
The Galion City Health Department is providing free mosquito dunks to city residents. The dunks are placed in areas of stagnant water in order to prevent mosquito breeding. They are available at the Health Department, 113 Harding Way East, on Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In order to help eliminate mosquitoes in your yard, you can:
-- Empty, remove, cover, or turn over receptacles with the potential to hold water.
-- Clean bird baths twice weekly.
-- Discard old tires or store them indoors.
-- Repair leaky plumbing and outside faucets.
-- Make sure gutters and downspouts are free of blockage and are properly draining.
-- Empty your pets’ water dishes daily.
