Five tips to prevent West Nile

  • Mosquitoes carrying West Nile usually bite at dusk and dawn, so avoid or limit outdoor activity at these times.
  • Wear loose-fitting, long sleeved shirts and pants to reduce exposed skin.
  • Cover exposed skin with insect repellent.
  • Empty any containers holding standing water, which are excellent breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
  • Make sure doors and windows are in good repair and fit tightly, and fix torn or damaged screens to keep mosquitoes out of the house.
