Don’t raise your own mosquitoes. Get rid of containers that have or may hold standing water where mosquitoes can breed.
Make sure that doors and windows have tight fitting screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
Wear light-colored, long, loose clothing, such as long sleeve shirts and pants when outdoors. Keep in mind that mosquitoes can bite through thin or tight clothes.
Use mosquito netting when sleeping or camping outdoors.
Stay indoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
Apply approved insect repellent whenever you are outdoors, even for a short period of time. Choose a repellent based on duration of activity. Remember when you are sweating, physically active, or getting wet, some repellents may not last long.
