Drain any standing water that may produce mosquitoes around your home, especially after it rains.
Defend yourself against mosquitoes by using an effective insect repellent. Focus the repellent on your ankles, feet, lower legs and wrists — thin-skinned spots mosquitoes love to bite. Make sure you follow the repellent label’s directions!
Dawn and Dusk are times to avoid being outside, when mosquitoes are out and about and looking to bite.
Door and window screens should be in good working condition and free of holes and tears. This will prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
Dress appropriately by wearing light-colored long sleeves and pants when outdoors. Thicker fabrics and looser fits offer more protection than thin clothing that fits tightly.
District personnel are available to address any mosquito problem you may be experiencing, to report water that may be breeding mosquitoes, and to answer any questions you may have by calling (530) 533-6038 or submitting a service request.
