Take steps to prevent mosquito-borne illnesses

State and local officials offer several steps to reduce the risk of mosquito-borne infections:

· Drain standing water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water.

· Check rain gutters and drains. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change water in birdbaths frequently.
