Remember the 3 D's of Mosquito Bite Prevention!

 

Drain​ - Empty out containers around the yard at least once a week! Put holes into containers that regularly hold water to allow them to drain. Check and clean out gutters. Flush out or treat bird baths and bromeliads. 

Dress - Wear appropriate clothing during mosquito season and at the peak hours of dawn and dusk. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended, as well as wearing light colored clothing which is less likely to attract mosquitoes than darker colors. 

Defend - Wear an EPA approved repellant and reapply according to the label. Approved repellants include those containing DEET, Picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
