Protect Yourself From West Nile Virus

Submitted by: David Whitesell

The Colusa Mosquito Abatement District would like to urge the public of the importance to protect themselves and their families from exposure to mosquitoes.  Due to three recent West Nile Virus (WNV) Human cases within Colusa County, the Colusa Mosquito Abatement District (CMAD) has ramped up control efforts within the district, even with limited funding, to try and keep the mosquito population at a minimum. CMAD provides comprehensive mosquito control services and public health protection to the Colusa residential areas, as well as wetland and agricultural lands within their 160 square mile district. Economic conditions over the past ten years have resulted in severe financial hardship, and would like to remind the public within the CMAD district to remember to vote on the upcoming Mosquito, Vector and Disease Control Measure.  CMAD would like to remind the public of the three D’s for protecting themselves from WNV:

DRAIN- Mosquitoes lay their eggs and grow in standing water. Empty water from buckets, old tires, flower pots and toys, and change water from pet bowls and bird baths every few days.

DUSK AND DAWN- Mosquitoes bite in the early morning and evening. Protect yourself by wearing long sleeve shirts and pants and use insect repellent.

DEET- Use insect repellent with DEET in it. DEET keeps mosquitoes from biting you. Follow directions carefully.
