Volusia County Mosquito Control will hold a tire amnesty event, for residential tires, on Saturday, October 30, at Volusia County Mosquito Control on South Street in New Smyrna Beach from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
According to a release, there is a limit of twenty tires per person, and there is no cost to drop off tires.
Residents can take preventative steps to continue to fight the bite. These steps include tipping containers weekly to remove standing water, tossing containers that are not in use, and wearing mosquito repellent to avoid mosquito bites.
Additional tips to prevent mosquito bites include:
Toss bottles, cans, pots, and broken appliances.
Turn over empty pots and buckets.
Replace water in birdbaths and pet dishes at least once a week.
Don’t overwater the lawn.
Clean out eaves, troughs, and gutters.
Drain water from boats and tarps.
Maintain the proper chemistry in swimming pools.
Empty plastic pools when not in use.
