Mosquito Warmer weather means spending more time outdoors. But, it also means that mosquitoes are becoming active. 

The Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center is encouraging residents to be vigilant about eliminating sources for mosquitoes to breed as well as using protection to avoid mosquito bites.

Recommendations to prevent mosquito breeding include:
  • Discard old tires, buckets, drums or any water holding containers; poke holes in tires used as bumpers on docks
  • Keep roof gutters and downspouts clear of debris
  • Keep trash containers covered
  • Fill in tree rot holes and hollow stumps that hold water
  • Change the water in bird baths and plant urns at least once a week
Recommendations to prevent mosquito bites include:
  • Wear light-colored clothing that minimizes exposed skin and provides some protection from mosquito bites
  • Make sure door and window screens fit tightly and that all holes are repaired
  • Apply insect repellent that includes DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535 according to label instructions; consult a physician before using repellents on infants.
Residents may report areas of stagnant water (conducive for mosquito breeding) as well as locations of dead birds, or learn more about the signs and symptoms of West Nile encephalitis by calling the West Nile hotline number: (847) 377-8300.
Have a fun and bite-free summer!
