Austin Public Health announced last week that Mosquitos in Austin have tested positive for West Nile Virus. No humans cases have been reported.
The mosquito season is still upon us, as the temperatures have yet to drop. Please be sure to try and protect your family with these tips:
- Regularly check yards and neighborhoods for water-holding containers and empty them out (it only takes a teaspoon of water for mosquitoes to breed)
- Wear long-sleeved, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing
- Use an EPA-recommended insect repellent and carefully follow all label directions
