May 2016 - Overall West Nile Virus Threat
Due to cooler daily temperatures, slower mosquito life cycle, and residents spending more time indoors, the likelihood for West Nile virus transmission has decreased.
Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District makes the following recommendations to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes:
- Eliminate any standing water around your house.
- Make sure all window and door screens on your house are in good repair.
- Wear a repellent containing DEET®, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus, or IR 3535.
- Contact the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District to report dead birds or neglected pools.
