Mosquito Control Information

http://www.odh.ohio.gov/en/features/odhfeatures/Mosquitoes/fightbites.aspx
This link from the Ohio Department of Health discusses some of the bullet points listed below concerning how to avoid mosquito bites and also addresses tick issues.
 
What can I do to help prevent mosquitoes from breeding around my home and in my neighborhood?
·         Fix holes in the ground that collect and retain water.
·         Fix outdoor spigots that leak and cause puddles.
·         Keep your house gutters clean and clear of debris.
·         Look for items in the yard that collect and retain water such as children’s pools and buckets.  Drain these items of water and turn them over.
·         Consider drilling holes in any flower pots or garbage cans that naturally collect and hold water.
·         Clean blocked ditches so water flows through them and does not become stagnant.
·         Clean your gutters.
·         Repair any compromised door and window screens in your home.  Keep your screen doors and windows closed. 
·         Keep vegetation such as high weeds trimmed short.
·         Keep your property free of waste items such as cans, tires, etc.
 
How can I protect myself from mosquito bites?
·         Dress in light-colored long sleeved shirts and pants.  (Remember that clothing is a protective layer that discourages mosquitoes from biting!)
·         Consider using a personal insect repellent that contains DEET.  Be sure to read and follow product application directions.
·         Avoid the use of scented products such as perfumes or colognes.
·         Avoid areas that have high populations of mosquitoes.
