OCMVCD promotes California Mosquito Awareness Week by Encouraging Residents to Protect Themselves From Mosquito-Borne Diseases

Garden Grove, CA. The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District is participating in California Mosquito Awareness Week April 18-24th. As stay-at-home orders are loosened or lifted, mosquito experts encourage residents to protect themselves against mosquito bites and the spread of mosquito-transmitted viruses.

To help prevent mosquito bites:

  • Apply insect repellent containing EPA-registered active ingredients, including DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535, to clothes and exposed skin according to label instructions.
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants, especially if outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes that can spread West Nile virus are most active.
  • Install screens on windows and doors and keep them in good repair to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
  • Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flowerpots, old tires, buckets, pet dishes, and trash cans. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in very small amounts of standing water.
  • Repair leaking faucets and broken sprinklers that can contribute to standing water around your home.
  • Clean rain gutters clogged with leaves.
