You are traveling to a warm area or looking ahead to mosquito season where you live.  

 In order to protect from birth defects, we must take every possible precaution to interrupt the process of mosquitoes infecting people with the Zika virus.

  • Wear light covered, loose fitting clothing that covers as much skin as possible
  • Apply insect repellant using safe products and methods
  • Remove any items that contain standing water from the area
  • Use screens in windows and air conditioning in sealed homes where possible
  • Conduct a barrier spray program. Treating the grounds for a special event like a wedding or pool party may meet your needs.
