I'm not saying they didn't do this. But if i'm going to believe this it has to be from a more credible source then Wikipedia. Never use Wikipedia as a source it's for the most part unreliable.

CHECK YOUR AREA & IMPLEMENT THE FOLLOWING:
1. Empty, drain, remove, cover or turn upside down things that can hold water. Throw out old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, and other containers or keep them upside down so no water can enter them.
2. Empty any small plastic wading pools weekly. Store it indoors when not in use. Properly maintain your swimming pool and keep it covered so as not to collect water.
3. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Don't let runoff water from your air conditioner collect in shady areas.
4. Repair faulty septic systems (Call the Atlantic County Division of Public Health at 645-5971 prior to any septic system repairs).
5. Change water and scrub vases holding flowers once a week - or grow cuttings in sand.
6. Scrub and change the water in bird baths weekly.
7. Empty and refill pets' water pans daily.
8. Discard old tires or store them indoors.
9. Don't dump grass clippings, branches or other items in storm drains or ditches.
10. Fill holes in trees with sand or mortar.
