How to Create a Native Landscape to Help Control Moquitoes at Home

Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District and the UC Master Gardeners of Placer County worked together to create this guide to help Placer County residents create a modern, low-water and mosquito deterrent landscape. From how to attract pollinators to your garden beds to how to keep mosquitoes from breeding in your ponds, this guide is meant to help inspire you to create, maintain and enjoy a beautiful front or back yard.
