The MVCAC recommends the public practice the “D's” of mosquito prevention:
- DRAIN all standing water.
- DAWN and DUSK are times to avoid being outside.
- DRESS in long sleeves to avoid being bitten.
- DEFEND yourself from mosquitoes with an effective repellent.
- DOOR and window screens should be closed and in good working condition.
