West Nile virus in La Habra Heights: What you need to know

Message from the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District: 

Summer and autumn are the perfect seasons to spend time outdoors. Unfortunately, West Nile virus and mosquitoes are more active during this time. The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District would like to remind all residents of La Habra Heights that West Nile virus is still active in the city. Here are some tips to stop the bite for renters, homeowners and business owners:

Tip #1:  Get rid of standing water at least once a week – Mosquitoes complete their life cycles in about a week. By removing stagnant water from containers around the home and business, you’re doing your part in creating a healthier community. If possible, remove all unused containers and old tires. This will help keep your property safe and clean!

Tip #2: Use insect repellent when you’re outdoors where mosquitoes are present. Are you confused when you see a whole aisle of repellent? Look for any of the following active ingredients that have been proven effective against mosquitoes: DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus, Picaridin, and IR3535.

Tip #3: Screen out mosquitoes! Make sure the screens on doors and windows do not have any tears that will allow mosquitoes to enter the home or building.

These simple tips will protect you from mosquitoes and reduce the risk of getting sick. If you need further help or notice mosquito problems in your community, be sure to contact vector control at www.ReportMosquitoes.org or call 562-944-9656.
