Above-average rainfall and mild temperatures in March have provided for perfect mosquito breeding conditions in San Joaquin County, according to John Stroh, manager of the county Mosquito and Vector Control District.

"The latest rains and high river flows are providing an abundance of standing water in many areas of the county," Stroh said in a news release.

Residents should inspect their properties for standing water, including containers that hold rainwater. Dumping and draining rain-filled containers will help reduce mosquitoes going into the warmer months, Stroh said.

Residents can report mosquito problems or request service by calling 982-4675, calling a toll-free number, 800-300-4675, emailing district@sjmosquito.org or visiting www.sjmosquito.org.

For California West Nile virus information and to report dead birds and squirrels, call toll-free at 877-968-2473, or visit www.westnile.ca.gov or www.sjcphs.org/emprep/WestNileVirus.htm.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
