[ARCHIVED] Fight the Bite

Town Seal with Town Hall


Fight the Bite!


Protect yourself from West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis by remembering these things: 


  • Use mosquito repellant containing DEET. Follow label instructions. Cover up when you’re outside with long sleeves and long pants.
  • Avoid time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Remove standing water so mosquitoes don’t breed. Check around your home for flower pots, tires, and wading pools that might have standing water.
  • Fix any holes in your screens and make sure they are tightly attached to doors and windows in your home.
