The Compton Creek Mosquito Abatement District is an independent special district committed to protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare from mosquito-borne diseases.  In fact, we have been performing this service, protecting public health, since 1927, when the residents of the City of Compton, realizing that mosquitoes were having an adverse effect on the lives, elected to form the District and alleviate the problems with mosquitoes. Now covering 12.5 square miles and protecting close to 100,000 citizens, the District is funded through tax dollars and provides free services for mosquitoes and all of the other related items involved in mosquito control.

Mosquitoes not only breed in standing water, they can do so in something as small as a bottle cap. Kill mosquitos before they have a chance to breed or hatch by eliminating standing water around your house.

Mosquitos are most active between dusk and dawn, so schedule outdoor activities to avoid those peak times.  If you do go outside, placing a large fan nearby might help since mosquitos are pretty weak fliers.  And don’t forget your insect repellent!

If it’s not too hot out, wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks when outdoors.  Use insect repellent on exposed skin.  Mosquitos can bite through thin clothing, so spray insect repellent on your clothes for extra protection.

What repellents are safe?  The CDC recommends products containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products.  Make sure to follow package directions and  wash all repellents off with warm soapy water once you return indoors.
