A Note to Educators:
The enclosed material is designed to be used as a
supplement, and is not all-inclusive. It is expected that the presenter is someone well versed in the subject matter at
hand, who will use the Power Point slides as prompts to help organize his or her oral discussion.
The subject matter is therefore flexible; it can be adapted to any age group through use of appropriate vocabulary. Also
included are a variety of games and activities to select from for the activity breaks, the choice of which should depend
upon the age group being addressed.
This material has been collected from numerous sources on
the internet; in the best tradition of plagiarism we have
assembled the most accurate information, the liveliest of
artwork, the cleverest of games and puzzles from a wide
assortment of mosquito control organizations and
educational institutions entirely too numerous to mention,
and we thank them gratefully for their most generous
The supporting material is provided in PDF format; where
appropriate, however, the corresponding Word Document
is provided so that the presenter may insert the appropriate organizational logo.
Good luck!

Say No
To Mosquitoes!
Mosquitoes need standing water in which to grow, from egg
to larva to pupa and finally to hatch into a full grown
mosquito. You can keep this from happening by not letting
this water stay around your yard for more than a few days:

Birdbaths – Change the water at least once a week

Containers – Empty them, turn them over or get rid of
them! These include buckets, barrels, boats, pots,
saucers, toys, etc.

Bromeliads and other hollow-stemmed plants – Rinse
them with clean water at least once a week
