The Placer Mosquito Abatement District has scheduled a mosquitofish giveaway from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at DeWitt Center in north Auburn.
Mosquitofish are effective in controlling the insects because they eat the mosquito larvae often found in freshwater and ornamental ponds, horse troughs, unmaintained swimming pools and open containers of water.
Participants are asked to bring their own containers, if possible. The giveaway will be in the parking lot and grassy area across from the Placer County Administrative Center.
For more information, call (916) 435-2140.
