Mosquito Bite Prevention Tips  Wear long sleeves, pants, socks and shoes when outside.  Apply Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)approved insect repellent to exposed skin and/or clothing as directed by the product label.  Use air conditioning and make sure screens on windows and doors are secure and not torn.

Mosquito Control Tips  Empty or throw away water-filled containers.  Cover or turn over empty items that can collect water.  Clean and scrub bird baths and pet-watering dishes weekly.  Report high numbers of mosquitoes or standing water in your neighborhood by calling (202) 442-5833 or emailing [email protected] .
