All residents are encouraged to continue to follow the 4D’s of personal protection throughout the mosquito season regardless of surveillance results.
- Dusk to Dawn - stay indoors when mosquitoes are active
- Drain - standing water in your yard where water might collect in places like flower pots, toys, clogged rain gutters and wading pools
- Dress - in light-colored long sleeves and pants
- DEET - apply repellant when outdoors
Personal protection and elimination of breeding habitat are the best, most cost effective means of mosquito control. Individual residents are the only ones who can ensure these steps are taken.
