To help reduce the mosquito population in Westchester County, the Health Department is giving residents free fathead minnows to add to their backyard ponds and water features and free dunks for their birdbaths, rain barrels and unused pools.

Residents with ponds who want the minnows should bring a bucket or pail to 2 Loop Road at the Westchester County Airport. The building is the first right from the airport access road.

The minnows will be distributed in watertight plastic bags, and residents should plan to bring them straight home and release them into ponds with at least 8 inches of water.

Dates to pick up the minnows are:

  • Thursday-Friday, May 5-6, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Thursday-Friday, May 19-20, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 21, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
