1. Always use a good quality repellent, especially at dawn or dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
2. Eliminate any areas where standing water can collect for more than seven days including are old tires, children’s pools, buckets, and clogged gutters.
3. Change water in birdbaths frequently.
4. When mowing the lawn, do not direct grass clippings into the street. The grass will wash into the street storm sewers, providing the perfect breeding environment for mosquitoes that commonly carry the West Nile Virus.
