Ships collide at Orleans Mosquito control be citizens responsibility the City of Biloxi is spending a considerable stun of Money in draining and oiling the entire town in Orler to get rid of Mosquito Breeding places. Following is a suggestion from or. George Parker director of malaria control Mississippi state Board of health for the citizens of Biloxi to carry out and by so doing will help get rid of the mosquitoes a serious and so far very effective Mosquito control Campaign is being carried on by the City of Biloxi. Each resident is aware of the tremendous Good which will result if Biloxi is made free of mosquitoes. There Are several kinds of mosquitoes against which the Campaign must be waged and among them is the so called Domestic Mosquito which confines its activities and Breeding almost exclusively to private premises. This Mosquito will Breed Only in water in artificial containers very close to where people live or frequently congregate to control this Mosquito is in tim it out of the question unless each property owner or tenant keeps All premises for which they Are responsible free of All possible Breeding places. In order to assist the property owner and tenant to keep their premises free of Mosquito Breeding attention is failed to the following places that usually Are to be found holding water and in which mosquitoes Breed. Tin cans bottles urns boxes barrels Flower vases old automobile tires roof gutters cisterns cesspools and shallow Weels. Ice. Box drainage. This is very often allowed to accumulate under the House. Pools of All kinds including Ponds. Surface gutters or drains. Water containers in junk piles and trash heaps. Tanks water closets not in use. Chicken drinking pans privy vaults hollow Trees stumps and knot holes that hold water. Any other article or place Likely to hold water. It is just As necessary for every one to take care of the urea surrounding the House As it is to look after the House itself if Mosquito Breeding is to be prevented. Make a thorough inspection of the premises on a certain Day of each week and destroy All Mosquito Breeding places. Only a few minutes will be required. John a. Swanzy commissioner of Public works.
