September is finally here with fall right around the corner! Thankfully, the cooler weather means that we can all take a break from the mosquitoes and enjoy our time outdoors without worrying about those annoying pests.
It also means that your Cowlitz County Mosquito Control District will be closed until next spring when the mosquitoes begin their life cycle once more. Until then, we all hope you enjoy your fall and winter. We will see you next spring!
