Stop mosquitoes from breeding and biting
We don’t know if mosquitoes that spread Zika will ever make it up to Clark County. But wherever you live, it’s important to eliminate areas of standing water where mosquitoes can breed. Once a week, walk around your home and empty and scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water – tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots, plastic tarps, trash containers, etc.
To prevent mosquito bites, repair screens on your windows and doors and wear long pants and long sleeved shirts outdoors, particularly at dawn and dusk. Use mosquito repellent such as DEET.
