- Use insect repellent with DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535 when outdoors during night or early dawn.
- Wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, and socks when outdoors during these mosquito hours.

Mosquitoes track their prey by using their senses for chemical, visual and heat. Some mosquitoes will even fly over two miles to get a good meal. Mosquitoes can transmit several potentially life-threatening diseases. While humans can obtain West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis from mosquitoes, pets can contract heartworm disease from them. Mosquitoes are considered to be one of the most deadly insects in the world.
