What Can I Do To Protect Myself Against Mosquitoes That Carry The West Nile Virus?
It is important that residents and businesses eliminate stagnant water on their properties. To avoid mosquito bites and prevent West Nile Virus disease, these precautions are recommended:
- Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, especially between dusk and dawn.
- When outdoors at this time, use mosquito repellent.
- Change water in bird baths and wading pools daily.
- Eliminate water in flowerpots, children toys, old tires and any other receptacles.
- Clear gutters and down spouts so water does not sit in them.
- Report catch basin or standing water on your property to Clarke (The Village’s Mosquito Control Contractor) at 1-800-942-2555.
- Un-maintained swimming pools may produce thousands of mosquitoes. Make sure the Village is made aware of any un-maintained swimming pools in your neighborhood.
