Frequently Asked Questions about West Nile Virus  (CDC)

Insect Bites and Stings  Information on the different types of insect bites and stings inflicted on humans by mosquitoes, flies, scorpions, fleas, chiggers, fireants and others.
West Nile Virus prevention includes mosquito control and protection from insect bites.  DEET products are highly recommended by the CDC to help protect people from biting mosquitoes.  Killing existing adult mosquitoes (carriers of West Nile Virus and other diseases) does help but killing immature mosquitoes provides better control.
Eliminating all possible breeding conditions is the first step.  In some cases it is not possible to eliminate all bodies, pools of water in which mosquitoes breed.  It is in these cases that the use of a larvacide is necessary.  Products containing Bacillus thuringiensis that are labeled for use in standing water where mosquitoes breed provide the best mosquito control.
Examples of Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) products are Mosquito Bits and Mosquito Dunks.  These pest control products are safe to use in areas children and pets frequent and are effective in controlling mosquito larvae.
Mosquitoes are more active in morning and evening hours.  Time your outdoor activities in a manner that allows the least exposure to insect bites.  When working or playing outdoors during these peak hours, wear protective clothing (covering as much bare skin as possible) to prevent mosquito bites.  Use DEET insect repellent as extra protection from bites of mosquitoes and other biting insects.
