Residents Reminded to Fight the Bite

2015-05-bite

The City of Irving takes mosquito control very seriously. If any of the city’s 27 traps test positive, Irving’s vector control technicians will spray at night. The city also has traps specially designed to attract the species of mosquito that carries Zika.

How can residents help? Self-protection is the best course of action, so be sure to follow the four Ds:

  • Dusk and Dawn – When mosquitoes are most active.
  • Drain – Eliminate standing water, such as in flower pots, rain gutters, etc.
  • DEET – Make sure insect repellent contains this ingredient. DEET has been tested and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • Dress – Wear long sleeves, pants, shoes and socks when outside.

Share this information with family members and neighbors. The best way to stay safe is to take precaution. Visit IrvingFightsTheBite.org for more information about the city's mosquito abatement efforts.
