The NOMTCB urges residents to protect themselves from mosquito bites by limiting outdoor activities between dusk and dawn, using EPA-approved repellents and reducing the number of mosquitoes by emptying water-filled containers. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective.
