People have been commenting on Facebook about what they thought were tiger mosquitoes in Monrovia, and now the city has confirmed this with this posting in Facebook:
Asian Tiger Mosquitos are in Monrovia. Some tips on preventing the spread of mosquitos include:
1. Eliminate any standing water from yards, watered vegetation, planters and flower pots.
2. "Dump & Drain" any areas with standing water.
3. Residents who suspect that Asian Tiger Mosquitoes are present in their yards should routinely dispose of or carefully clean and disinfect any containers that hold water.
