Imperial County is reporting the first West Nile virus death in California for 2019. As summer progresses, the risks of West Nile virus increase. CDPH recommends following the “Three Ds:”

DEET. Apply EPA-registered insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535 according to label instructions.

-DAWN AND DUSK. Wear proper clothing and repellent during dawn and dusk, as those are the times mosquitoes are most likely to bite.

-DRAIN. Drain all standing water on your property, as that’s where mosquitoes lay their eggs.
