Mosquitoes & West Nile Virus
West Nile Virus is a type of encephalitis virus that can be transmitted by being bitten by a mosquito infected with the virus.
To help reduce your chance of being bitten by a mosquito carrying West Nile Virus, take the following precautions:
- Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts when outdoors.
- Use insect repellent containing DEET.
- Eliminate sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed.
- Keep grass, weeds and other shrubbery trimmed.
- Avoid being outdoors in the early evening, dusk or dawn, when mosquitoes are most active.
You can help control mosquito populations, too, by removing sources of standing water that mosquitoes require to breed.
Follow this checklist to reduce mosquitoes near you:
- Dispose of tin cans, old tires, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, ceramic pots, and other containers, or make sure they contain no standing water.
- Clean clogged gutters and/or slope to downspouts.
- Drain improperly installed and sagging swimming pool covers.
- Change the water in birdbaths at least twice weekly.
- Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor spas, saunas, and hot tubs. If not in use, keep them empty and covered.
- Change water and scrub containers/vases holding plants twice weekly.
- Empty your pet’s water pan daily.
- Repair leaky pipes and faucets.
- Screen rain barrels and openings to water tanks.
- Eliminate weeds, tall grass and other mosquito breeding places.
- Use larvicide where standing water cannot be removed or fill holes.
- Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating fish.
- Remind neighbors to eliminate breeding sites on their property.
- Make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens in good repair.
