Protect yourself from mosquito-borne diseases with the four D’s


Prevention is the best defense against the West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases. Mesquite residents are reminded to remember the four D’s:

  • Dusk and dawn are the times of day you should try to stay indoors. This is when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants when you are outside.
  • DEET is an ingredient to look for in your insect repellent. Follow label instructions, and always wear repellent when outdoors.
  • Drain standing water in your yard and neighborhood where mosquitoes can breed. Mosquitoes may develop in any water stagnant for more than three or four days.
