Mosquitoes: Each spring, we ask Anne Arundel County test to treat the larvae in our standing water, and to add our community to their bi-weekly spraying throughout the summer. Despite this, we often have a continued problem with the mosquitoes.
Please call the Mosquito Control at 410 -841-5870 to report problems. The county needs to receive a high volume of calls before they will take additional action.
Homeowners can also hire a company to spray their yard. Most landscapers and pest control companies offer this service. You can also buy other mosquito control products at places like Home Depot.
