Now is the time for New Yorkers – especially people over 50 – to take

personal precautions to prevent mosquito bites:



· Use repellents that contain DEET, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus, IR3535, or Picaridin and ALWAYS follow label instructions.

· If outside from dusk to dawn, wear protective clothing if possible, such as loose-fitting pants, long-sleeved shirts, and socks.

· Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens.

Fix or replace screens that have tears or holes.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Reduce mosquito exposure around your home:



· Eliminate any standing water that collects on your property.

· Remind or help neighbors to eliminate standing water on their properties.

· Call 311 to report standing water.



For more information about West Nile virus, call 311, or go to www.nyc.gov/health.
