THE FIVE D'S

Protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites by practicing the “Five D’s.”

Dusk/Dawn – Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus usually bite at dusk and dawn, so avoid or limit outdoor activity at these times.

Dress – Wear loose-fitting, long-sleeved shirts and pants to reduce the amount of exposed skin.

DEET – Cover exposed skin with an insect repellent containing DEET.

Drain - Empty any containers holding standing water because they are excellent breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Doors – Make sure doors and windows are in good repair and fit tightly.

 

TIP 'N TOSS

Don't forget to tip 'n toss containers holding water after every rainfall. Eliminating standing water prevents mosquito breeding.
