Pitt County Health Department officials are recommending that residents take advantage of the NC Governor’s COVID-19 “Stay-At-Home” order to begin preparing their homes and yards for mosquito season. “Mosquitoes can be more than just a nuisance. They can spread diseases which can range from mild to severe. In rare circumstances, some of these conditions can be fatal. With the arrival of spring, bringing warm and wet weather, our Environmental Health staff is monitoring and promoting the control of our mosquito population,” said Pitt County Health Director, Dr. John Silvernail.
Along with recommendations from the CDC, Pitt County Vector Control Manager, Jim Gardner recommends the following measures to help provide mosquito control.
