WELCOME TO THE NORTHWEST MOSQUITO ABATEMENT DISTRICT

HELP PROTECT YOURSELF FROM WEST NILE VIRUS AND ZIKA

Ways you can protect yourself from Mosquito Bites

- Avoid being outdoors around dusk and dawn, this is when mosquitoes are most active.

- Wear Long sleeves and pants when outdoors.

- Use insect repellent containing 20% DEET, Picaridin or Oil of Lemon eucalyptus. Make sure you apply as directed on product label.

- Inspect your yard for containers that are holding water, dump them out if they can hold water up to 5 days or more.

- Set up a box or oscillating fan on your patio, set it to create a 7-10 mph wind.  Mosquitoes can not fly in higher winds.

- Make sure you have screens on all windows and doors.

- Avoid being in heavily shaded or wooded areas.

- Nothing can prevent all mosquito bites, but taking these steps can greatly reduce the number of bites.

- Remember, Mosquito populations fluctuate during the summer months.  On average, mosquitoes live 14-20 days
