Cicero, IL

It appears that people in Cicero, even in the Boulevard Manor neighborhood, are refusing to get rid of standing water, which is breeding grounds for mosquitoes. As everyone knows by now, mosquitoes are oh so totally irritating. Their pesky whine, and not to mention their bites that swell and itch like crazy! And of course, the dreaded West Nile Virus, which is transmitted by those same pesky mosquitoes. Just a couple of weeks ago, I took a walk through Boulevard Manor, which is where I live, and was shocked at how many garbage cans, yard compost bins, and such, were not only full of standing water, but even allready had mosquitoes swarming around and breeding in them, too. And I actually drained several of those garbage cans by gently laying them over sideways so the water flows out.(Don't worry, I put all the garbage back into those cans afterwards, plus I righted the cans after draining the water from them.) It also appears the ones that had the standing water in them had either broken/busted lids, or no lids at all. Those lids are very important in keeping rain and water out of the garbage cans, in turn denying those mosquitoes, which carry irritating and horribly itchy bites plus West Nile Virus, a place to breed.
