Nevada County’s Vector Control Program will give away mosquito fish and containers for transporting the fish between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., June 28, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

The fish eat mosquito eggs and larvae left on ponds. To minimize mosquito breeding in other areas, eliminate all standing water including water in birdbaths, buckets, rain gutters and tires, vector control officials advised.

Next week’s giveaway will take place by the Gentle Giant monument at the Brighton Street entrance. The county will continue to give away mosquito fish every other week, at the same time and location throughout the summer, until public interest declines.

For more information, call the Nevada County Agricultural Commissioner’s office at 273-2648.
