West Nile Virus is a disease that is spread by infected mosquitos. So the best defense against the West Nile Virus is not giving them a place to breed.
Here are some things you can do around your home.
Dispose of tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar water holding
containers that have collected on your property.
Pay special attention to discarded tires. Stagnant water in tires is where most
Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors.
Have clogged roof gutters cleaned every year, particularly if the leaves from
surrounding trees have a tendency to plug up the drains. Roof gutters can produce millions of mosquitoes each season.
Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use. Stagnant water in a wading pool
becomes a place for mosquitoes to breed.
Turn over wheelbarrows and don't let water stagnate in birdbaths. Both provide
breeding habitats for domestic mosquitoes.
Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish. Water gardens can become major
mosquito producers if they are allowed to stagnate. Clean and chlorinate swimming pools not in use. A swimming pool left untended by a family on vacation for a month can produce enough mosquitoes to result in neighborhood-wide complaints. Mosquitoes may even breed in the water that collects on pool covers.
It is not necessary to limit any outdoor activities, unless local officials advise you otherwise. However, you can and should try to reduce your risk of being bitten by mosquitoes. In addition to reducing stagnant water in your yard, make sure all windows and doors have screens, and that all screens are in good repair.
