ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Dougherty County public works crews say they're winning the battle against mosquitoes so far this summer. Mosquito control crews continue to spray for mosquitoes five nights a week.

If a problem area pops up, they put out pellets. They say a more pro-active approach has led to fewer complaints.

"Right now, we're not getting a lot of complaints. We are getting some, but we're not getting so many to where we're overburdened by them, but we are addressing those complaints and we're trying to do everything we can to prevent even having some complaints," said Donnell Mathis of Dougherty County Public Works.

If you are having a problem with mosquitoes around your home, your property may be the culprit. Try to get rid of any standing water around your house.

Even containers such as bird baths should be emptied and refilled on a regular basis.
