How can I help prevent risks resulting from mosquitoes?

  • Wear long sleeves and pants when weather permits.
  • Make sure screens on windows and doors fit tightly and have no holes.
  • Eliminate breeding sites by emptying standing water from objects around the home, including flower pots, buckets, tire swings and children’s wading pools when not in use.  Change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in bird baths weekly.
