What can YOU do:
Personal protection is the most effective way to combat mosquitos, especially for those who are 50 and over. Residents should take the proper precautions to reduce the risk of getting bites by remembering the Four D’s: dress, defend, dusk/dawn, and drain.

  • DRESS to avoid mosquito bites by wearing long, loose and light-colored clothing when outside;
  • DEFEND yourself by using insect repellents approved by the EPA or CDC;
  • DUSK to DAWN outside activities should be avoided when possible, and especially if one isn’t dressed and prepared with repellent; and
  • DRAIN all areas of standing water in and around the home, including wading pools, pet dishes, and birdbaths

Residents should also make special efforts to reduce potential mosquito breeding areas within their yards and within their neighborhoods. Eliminate any standing water that collects on your property, for example, drain tires, cans, flowerpot saucers or anything else that holds water. Make sure gutters drain properly and clean gutters regularly. Change the water in birdbaths at least once a week. Use BTI briquettes, or larvicide briquettes, in standing water. BTI is a biological control agent that is very specific for killing mosquito larvae (available at home improvement and hardware stores).
