Fort Myers, Fla.— The Florida Department of Health in Lee County (DOH-Lee) is urging all residents and visitors, especially those that are spending time outdoors, to protect themselves from mosquito and tick bites this summer season. While most tick and mosquito bites are only an annoyance, sometimes these bites can be dangerous. Preventing bites reduces the risk of a person getting infected with a mosquito- or tick-borne disease.
“The very small act of reducing standing water around your homes and yards can greatly reduce mosquitos,” said Angela Smith, Health Officer for the Florida Department of Health in Lee County. “Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes that could potentially be infected with mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile Virus.”
Mosquito Bite Prevention
Using the right insect repellent and other preventive actions can discourage mosquitoes from landing on you. Follow these Drain and Cover tips to help prevent mosquito bites.
