Summer is fast upon us, and it is important to take precautions against mosquito-born illnesses.  Here are some helpful tips:

*The risk of contracting West Nile virus infection is low if you are bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus.

*In the majority of cases there are no symptoms after being bitten, or just mild flu-like symptoms appear.

*If illness does occur, it usually happens within 3-15 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

*Prevention is key to keep your family safe:

        -Use  an insect repellent or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
        -Wear long sleeved pants and shirts.    
        -Removed standing water around your home (i.e. plant
        pots, tires, pool covers).
        -Check screens, windows, and doors for correct fit and/or
        holes.
