Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:054 Tip: Mosquitoes can be controlled non-toxically by treating the water where their larva develop with a biological insect control bacteria called Bacillus thuringiensis israelenis. The treatment of standing water should begin early enough before the mosquito season to kill the larva. If you wait for the adult mosquitoes it is too late to use this method.
