The kits are for Oneida County residents.

Oneida County is giving out free mosquito control kits starting on Monday.

If you live in Oneida County, you can visit the Health Department's Environmental Services Office on the fourth floor of the Adirondack Bank Building in downtown Utica.

The EPA-approved "mosquito beater" is made locally at Bonide, and targets mosquito breeding grounds.

Here's what you can do at home to decrease the mosquito population:

  1. get rid of containers with standing water
  2. clean your gutters
  3. turn over wheelbarrows and kiddie pools when not in use
  4. change the water in your bird baths twice a week
