Muskogee County workers are working to keep the mosquito population under control.  

County officials say they are trying to get a head start on the mosquito season this spring and summer so they're putting special pellets into stagnant water across the county to help cut down on the mosquito population and it prevents them from breeding.

District 1 county commissioner Ken Doke says they want to stop the spread of the pests in their county.

"Already today we've put out several hundred.  Each of our county hands are kind of treating the areas that they work in and that gives us pretty good coverage in the county," said Ken Doke. 

Doke says Muskogee County will continue to do this all summer long.
