Remember the "4 Ds" for Defense:

  • DUSK/DAWN are the times of day you should stay indoors.  This is when mosquitoes are most active.
  • DRESS in long-sleeves and pants, and light colored clothing.  Mosquitoes are more attracted to dark colors.
  • DRAIN standing water in your backyard and neighborhood; old tires, flowerpots and clogged guttters.  These are mosquito breeding sites.
  • DEET is the ingredient to look for in you insect repellent.  Follow label instructions and always apply repellent to those 6 months and older when outdoors.  Reapply after swimming or sweating.
