EEE and West Nile Virus

We are reminded to be vigilant about protecting ourselves from mosquitoes, EEE, and West Nile virus.   

All residents are urged to continue taking personal precautions to protect against mosquito-borne illnesses, including Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile Virus (WNV).  These include using insect repellent, covering exposed skin when outside, and avoiding outdoor activities between the hours of dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active.  If weather permits, wear long-sleeves, long pants, and socks if outside event for a short time during peak active times for mosquitoes.  

Choosing an Effective Repellent:

When choosing a repellent, look at the active ingredient on the product label. Repellents that contain DEET work very well against mosquitoes.  In general, higher concentrations of DEET dont work better, they simply last longer.  You should use less than 30 percent DEET on kids and infants over 2 months of age.  Whatever product you choose, be sure to read the label to see what the concentration of DEET is and how often it should be reapplied.
