  1. Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, especially between dusk and dawn.
  2. When outdoors at this time, use mosquito repellant.
  3. Change water in bird baths and wading pools daily.
  4. Eliminate water in flower pots, children toys, old tires and any other receptables.
  5. Clear gutters and down spouts so water does not sit in them.
  6. Report catch basin or standing water on your property to SCCMAD.
