NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Metro Public Health Department is offering its 12th annual Backyard Inspection Day to help residents find out how to reduce the mosquito population.
Volunteers and Health Department staff will go door to door weather permitting between 9 a.m. and noon offering free inspections and information about how to avoid biting mosquitoes.
The events will be in parts of Bellevue and Hermitage on April 23 and in parts of Bordeaux and Woodbine on April 30. The Health Department says the areas were chosen because they have a history of mosquito problems.
Residents within the targeted areas can call (615) 340-2222 to request an inspection. Inspectors will go to those locations first.
