Drain, dress and repel.

You can take simple steps to avoid mosquito bites and reduce mosquito breeding sites around your home.

  • Drain and routinely empty anything that holds water, like gutters, pet bowls, tires, bird baths at least twice a week. Keep water moving in ornamental ponds by recirculating water or by installing a fountain.
  • Dress in long-sleeved shirts and long pants, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
  • If outdoors, use mosquito repellent where mosquitoes are active.

Use properly fitted door and window screens and stay indoors around dawn and dusk.
