The county says residents can also help prevent the spread of West Nile Virus by:

  • Using mosquito repellants and wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants
  • Taking extra precautions around dusk, the peak of female mosquito feeding
  • Closing window and door screens to prevent mosquitos from entering your home
  • Dumping stagnate water around your property
  • Treating water sources that cannot be drained with mosquito dunks that contain Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti), which kill larvae. These products are safe for use around humans and pets and can be found at hardware stores and other local retailers.
