Get ready for mosquitoes

Get ready for mosquitoes

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It is that time again- mosquitoes are starting to breed and laying larva.

A town hall meeting will be held this Saturday April 25th to inform residents how to protect themselves, and their families from West Nile virus.

Issues that will be addressed are what conditions mosquitos breed, how birds and animals play a part in the spread and simple measures communities can take to lower the risk.

"This will be a round table discussion where they can learn more about it and once they come to the meeting go home and implement some of these preventive methods in their own communities," said Jon Howard Ward I City Commissioner.

The meeting will be Saturday April 25th at 10:00AM at the east Albany Community Center on Oglethorpe.
