cuyahoga county board of health

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) would like to remind residents of the steps they can take to help reduce the local mosquito population.  Some mosquitoes breed in standing water in the woods, some in artificial containers (like buckets), while others prefer clogged gutters.  Eliminating standing water will help reduce the population of biting adult mosquitoes in the future.  Taking the following steps now will allow you to enjoy your backyard activities later this summer.  Click here for info.
