Remember the four D’s: • Dawn to Dusk - Try to stay indoors as much as possible. If this is not possible, make sure you follow the other D's. Mosquitoes are active most of the day. •Dress in long sleeves and pants when outside to keep skin covered. •DEET- Is an ingredient to look for in your insect repellent to apply when staying outdoors. •Drain - Standing water in your yard and neighborhood (for example: old tires, flower pots, rain gutters, etc.). These are mosquito breeding sites. Keep swimming pools treated and circulated and rain gutters unclogged.
