[ARCHIVED] Fight the Bite - Combat West Nile Virus

When dealing with West Nile virus, prevention is your best bet. Fighting mosquito bites reduces your risk of getting this disease, along with others that mosquitoes can carry. Take the commonsense steps below to reduce your risk:
•avoid bites and illness;
•clean out the mosquitoes from the places where you work and play;
•help your community control the disease.

Something to remember: The chance that any one person is going to become ill from a single mosquito bite remains low. The risk of severe illness and death is highest for people over 50 years old, although people of all ages can become ill.

To report nuisance mosquito activity, enroll in spray notification, or request that your property not have pesticides applied, please contact Colorado Mosquito Control online or at (877) 276-4306.
