Fort Sill Mosquito Fogging Schedule
Though rain chances are falling, there is still standing water across Fort Sill. Standing water is a breeding ground, literally, for mosquitoes. In order to reduce the chance of a mosquito outbreak, Fort Sill is taking active measures to fog. Please take special note of the schedule and the areas we are fogging. Take precautions during those times to avoid direct contact. Ensure you bring in toys and pets during the specified times. Also, wash toys that are left outside before letting children or pets play with them.
Mosquito AvoidanceIn order to help avoid mosquitoes this season, ensure you get rid of standing water. Eliminate any container that could hold standing water from your property, such as kid’s swimming pools that aren’t being used. Old tires should be disposed of and planters should not have standing water in them. Also, empty and refill water bowls for pets daily. When you are out and about, take care to minimize the chances of being bitten by wearing insect repellent, avoiding activities during dusk or dawn when mosquitoes are most active, or wearing long sleeves and long pants and avoiding areas near standing water.
