If you noticed an increase of mosquitoes in Amarillo.  The bad news is the swarm is just getting started.

The city utilizes a Dyna Jet mounted on the back of a pickup and disperses poison that will hopefully eradicate as many larva as possible before they mature and procreated. The vehicle released poison in ares prone to mosquito growth like standing water, low lying ditches and wherever

The city reminds you to be proactive and to lessen the amount of standing water on your property which is the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.  This includes emptying bird baths and fountains.

It is expected the mosquito population will greatly increase over the next two to three weeks.  If you plan on being outside be sure to wear plenty of mosquito repellent.
