The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends residents take the following precautions to protect themselves and their families:
• Wear insect repellent that has been registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and follow package directions.
• Wear long sleeves and pants.
• Eliminate standing water around your home (mosquitoes breed in water and it doesn't take much time).
More information about mosquito control in Westerville can be found on the City's website. Additionally, Franklin County Public Health offers a wealth of information about mosquito control and safety on their website, www.myfcph.org.
