Watch Out!



From the Neighborhood Network:

You may have seen reports in the news recently about West Nile cases on Long Island and pesticide spraying by both Nassau and Suffolk County in a number of areas throughout the Island.
There are steps you can take around your home to help prevent mosquitoes from breeding, and less toxic personal and yard repellents you can use to keep mosquitoes away.
Eliminate standing water on your property and clear clogged gutters on your house. Mosquitoes can breed in any water standing stagnant for 4 days or more.
As an alternative to DEET, look for repellents that have oil of lemon eucalyptus (the only herbal ingredient recommended by the federal Centers for Disease Control). Products with oils of soy and geranium have also been demonstrated as effective in published studies.
For information about upcoming mosquito spraying, visit your county's web site:
Nassau County Health Department.
Suffolk County Vector Control

For tips on preventing mosquitoes, and information on less toxic repellents, visit the Neighborhood Network's website:

In the fields of architecture and civil engineering, construction is a process that consists of the building or assembling of infrastructure. Far from being a single activity, large scale construction is a feat of human multitasking. Normally, the job is managed by a project manager, and supervised by a construction manager, design engineer, construction engineer or project architect.Pool Liners Long Island
