Sincerely, The ProHealth Team Today's Tip: Your best bet to prevent acquiring West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses is to take precautions to avoid exposure to mosquitoes. Steps you can take to help control West Nile virus include the following: –Eliminate standing water in your yard. Mosquitoes breed and multiply in standing water. –Unclog roof gutters. –Empty unused swimming pools. –Change water in birdbaths at least weekly. –Remove old tires or any unused containers that might hold water and serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. –Keep an eye out for sick or dying birds and report them to your local health department. To reduce your exposure to mosquitoes: –Avoid unnecessary outdoor activity when mosquitoes are most prevalent, such as dawn, dusk and early evening. –Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when going into mosquito-infested areas. –Apply an insect repellent.
