Remember the 4 Ds to defend yourself against West Nile virus:
- DUSK/DAWN are the times of day you should try to stay indoors. This is when infected mosquitoes are most active.
- DRESS in long sleeves and long pants when you’re outside. For extra protection, you may want to spray thin clothing with repellant.
- DEET (N.N-diethyl-m-toluamide) is an ingredient to look for in your insect repellent. Follow label instructions, and always wear repellent when outdoors.
- DRAIN standing water in your back yard and neighborhood — old tires, flowerpots, bird baths and clogged rain gutters. These are mosquito breeding sites.
