4D's of Mosquito Mitigation
"With a West Nile virus positive mosquito pool detected in Weld County last week, we suggest residents remember personal protection, whether at home or open spaces, and to avoid peak activity at dusk and dawn," said VDCI, the Town's contractor for mosquito mitigation. VDCI added, "This year is an uncommon and extraordinary year for mosquito populations." Please share the 4D's of Mosquito Mitigation:
Drain - remove standing water from your property.
Dress - wear long pants and sleeves to prevent mosquito bites.
Dawn and Dusk - avoid being outside during peak mosquito activity.
Defend - wear EPA approved repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus, and IR3535.
