Residents should take the following precautions to help reduce the chances of getting bit by mosquitoes:

-Dump and drain any containers filled with water at least once a week

-Clean and scrub bird baths and pet water bowls weekly

-Dump water from potted plant saucers

-Do not transport or share plant stems rooted in water

-Drill a hole or puncture containers to eliminate standing water

To prevent mosquito bites, the District offers the following tips:

-Apply mosquito repellents to expose skin before going outdoors; reapply as recommended

-Wear repellent containing DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus

-Close all unscreened doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home or space; repair broken or damaged screens

-Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and opt for lighter-colored clothing

On September 10, 11, and 12, the OCMVCD will conduct ultra-low volume truck-mounted applications to treat for infected adult mosquitoes between the hours of 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. in a 4.5 square mile area containing approximately 8,883 properties in Anaheim and Buena Park.
