How to protect yourself

​​
Be sure to protect yourself during outside activity by:
  • spray clothing and exposed skin with insect repellents (always follow label instructions).  Use repellents containing no more than 50% DEET on adults, 10% or less DEET on children 2-12 years old.
  • wear protective clothing such as light colored, long-sleeve shirts, long pants, and socks while outdoors.
  • limit outdoor activity at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are the most active.
    
     The village contracts with St. Louis County Health Department for mosquito control services. these services include:
  • monitoring potential breeding sites
  • applying treatment if mosquito larvae are found (larviciding)
  • spraying for adult mosquitoes based on surveillance data (adultciding).  Spraying kills only those adult mosquitoes that come in contact with the spray.  It is not a long-term solution.

The solution lies with you and your neighbors to dump the standing water!

     Ready or not - they are back! 
Mosquitoes!!

     As the temperature outside begins to rise, so does the mosquito population.  Mosquitoes are a summer nuisance and can ruin many outdoor activities.  But more importantly, they also pose a health threat, transmitting diseases, such as West Nile Virus, St. Louis encephalitis, and dog heartworm.  Worldwide, mosquitoes can carry many other diseases, such as dengue fever, malaria, and yellow fever.
Don't be a mosquito breeder!
Mosquitoes can ONLY develop in standing water.  They lay their eggs, usually in places where water collects (old tires, tin cans, buckets, gutters, plant bases, etc.)  To reduce the mosquito population around your home,
DUMP THE STANDING WATER!!
Here is an easy checklist to follow to prevent mosquito breeding around your home:
  • clean rain gutters & downspouts
  • discard old tires or store inside
  • empty flower pots, tin cans, buckets - any container that might collect water
  • store wheelbarrows, canoes, boats upside down
  • empty, clean and refill birdbaths and small wading pools weekly
  • stock ornamental ponds with fish that eat mosquito larvae
  • repair leaky outside faucets
  • secure swimming pool covers tightly
  • keep the grass cut and bushes trimmed


CAR CLOUTING!
ARE YOU IN THE DARK?
 STREETLIGHTS OUT?

     If you find yourself or your property in the dark ...check the streetlights!  If while out and about in the Village and it gets dark...check out the streetlights!
   
     The Village pays AmerenUE a whooping $600.00 a month for street lighting and we want them all lit and keeping your property illuminated!  If you see that the lights are out, let us know.  All we need is the location of the streetlight...either an address closest to the dark light, intersecting streets, the number listed on the pole (it will start with the letter "s" or "sh", or just general location (we will try to find it!) .

     You can let us know about dark streetlights by either giving us a call at 314.426.5750 or by sending us a quick email using the "CONTACT US" button located at the ltop of the page.
 
There have been incidents of car clouting reported all over the St. Louis County and City. 

Car clouting occurs when a driver leaves the car unlocked, or windows down, or anything that makes the car accessible.  This is easy for those who want to take your belongings.  All they have to do is just reach in and take your possessions.  No alarms go off alerting people of a break-in.

Easy way to prevent this from happening to you...
 LOCK YOU CAR NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE PARKED, EVEN YOUR DRIVEWAY!

Scammers are:
Ameren Warns Customers of Scams

Ameren customers should be aware of telephone, mail, email, door-to-door, and other in-person scams that involve criminals posing as Ameren representatives and demanding immediate payment or personal information.
     


Impersonating Ameren
representatives (over the phone
and in-person),
targeting vulnerable demographics such as senior citizens and non-native
English-speaking persons.

Using advanced tactics, such as playing a telephone recording
that sounds like Ameren's
phone system message or displaying Ameren's name or
logo in person.
 

Threatening to disconnect or suspend utility service if 
immediate payment is
not received.



If you have been contacted by someone impersonating Ameren:

  • Hang up the phone, or close the door, and call Ameren Missouri at 800.552.7583.

  • Do not give the caller or visitor a prepaid card, such as a Green Dot card, a wire transfer, or any other form of payment that may be difficult for law enforcement officials to trace.

  • Ignore suspicious requests for personal information such as bank account numbers, user names and passwords, credit card numbers or Social Security numbers.

  • Delete and block any emails from utilities that are not your service provider.

  • Delete all suspicious emails that require immediate action to verify or demand personal information.
