“PSA about how to mitigate mosquitos’ yearly reign of terror.”

“Dear PoPville,

I thought it might do something if you put out a PSA about how to mitigate mosquitos’ yearly reign of terror. The easiest and most important step is to eliminate standing water. I pulled a list from the internet:

Keep property dry by filling in low-lying areas where puddles and mud form.
Overturn or remove objects that collect water.
Put covers on boats.
Remove old tires or drill holes in them.
Work out all the creases in tarps and coverings.
Clear up clogs in downspouts.
Adjust eaves so they drain quickly.
Circulate water in ponds and horse troughs.
Chlorinate pools.
Adjust roofs so water drains from them.
Add mosquito-eating fish to ponds.
Trim overgrown grass and thick vegetation where adult mosquitoes hide.
Check areas within 100 yards of your property for these issues.”

To celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week (May 6-10, 2024), Clean Air Partners is working with A Few Cool Hardware Stores to exchange DC, Maryland and Virginia residents’ gas-powered lawnmowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers at select Ace Hardware locations in the region. DMV residents who turn in their gas-powered lawn tools will receive a FREE Ego Power+ replacement including batteries and chargers, while supplies last.

Compared to gas, electric lawn equipment can reduce emissions, noise pollution, health risks and maintenance costs and time. The program aims to remove about a hundred gas-powered polluting tools from yards in the greater Baltimore-Washington region.

The exchanges will take place the weekends of May 17-19, 2024, and May 31-June 2, 2024, at A Few Cool Hardware Stores network of employee-owned Ace Hardware stores in the DC and Baltimore metro areas. To participate and get your free Ego Power+ lawn tool, sign up at https://qrco.de/CAPExchange to reserve your tool and select your trade-in date and location.
