Intensive larviciding efforts are continuous.
Make sure to empty your containers that hold water and vaccinate your horses and pets to prevent mosquito-transmitted diseases.
We advise 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.
