Mosquito Prevention Information

It is mosquito season again and the City of Pottsboro is providing information on how to protect yourself, your family and your pets this season against those pesky pests and the viruses they carry. Here are a few tips to reduce your risks.

  1. Eliminate standing water from around your home. Water dishes from pets should be changed daily. Check to be sure birdbaths, flowerpots or trash containers do not hold standing water. 
  2. Check around water pipes to be sure there is no leakage or puddles.
  3. Check screens on your windows and make repairs as needed to keep them out of the home. 
  4. Where proper clothing outside to cover as much skin as possible. Long-sleeved shirts and long pants are best.
  5. Use mosquito repellents when appropriate.
  6. Stay indoors at Dusk & Dawn when mosquito's are most active.
