Mosquito sitting on skin ready to bite

Homeowner prevention tips:

  1. Eliminate or reduce mosquito breeding sites by replacing all standing water at least once a week. This includes bird baths, ponds and swimming pools.
  2. Remove unneeded vegetation or trash from around any standing water sources that cannot be changed, dumped or removed.
  3. Introduce mosquito-eating fish such as gambusia, green sunfish, bluegills and minnows to standing water.
  4. Screen windows, doors, and other openings with fine mesh, sealing around all screen edges and keeping doors and windows shut to prevent entry.
  5. Avoid going outdoors when and where mosquitoes are most active: during dusk or dawn.
  6. Use repellent on exposed skin whenever and wherever mosquitoes are likely to bite. The most effective repellents currently available contain the active ingredient N,N-diethylbenzamide (DEET), in concentrations up to about 35% (greater concentrations don’t offer better protection).
  7. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long-legged pants, preferably treated with a repellent as well.
