No arbovirus activity has been detected in sentinel chickens.
Make sure to empty your containers that hold water and vaccinate your horses and pets to prevent mosquito-transmitted diseases. Lastly, MMS advises the public to remain diligent in protecting themselves from mosquito bites by following the “5 D’s,” which are:
- Dusk and Dawn – Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are biting.
- Dress – Wear clothing that covers most of your skin.
- Defend yourself use repellents. Repellents that contain Picaridin, DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide). Oil of lemon eucalyptus, IR3535 and permethrin are some repellent options.
- Drainage – Check around your home to rid the area of standing water, which is where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
