Each year the week of June 26 is declared National Mosquito Control Awareness Week by the American Mosquito Control Association. This year it takes place June 21-27. It’s spearheaded by the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA), an international organization of nearly 2,000 public health professionals that has been dedicated to preserving the public’s health and well-being through safe, environmentally sound mosquito control programs since 1935. In light of this week we will be happy to pass on information that can protect you and your family from these pests.
The THREE D’s of Mosquito Prevention:
1. DRAIN: Empty out water containers at least once per week.
2. DRESS: Wear long sleeves, long pants and light-colored loose-fitting clothing.
3. DEFEND: Properly apply an approved repellent such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon-eucalyptus.
