Mosquito and Vector Control District Tips on Mosquito Control

The 7 D's

All community members are encouraged to practice the District’s D’s of Mosquito Prevention. 

  • DRAIN any standing water that may produce mosquitoes. 
  • DAWN and DUSK are times to avoid being outside. This is when mosquitoes are most active. 
  • DRESS appropriately by wearing long sleeves and pants when outdoors. 
  • DEFEND yourself against mosquitoes by using an effective insect repellent, such as DEET, Picaridin or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus. Make sure you follow label directions! 
  • DOOR and window screens should be in good working condition. This will prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
  • DISTRICT personnel are available to address any mosquito problem you may be experiencing by calling 1-800-429-1022.
