Mosquito Information

The Colorado Department of Health has concern that there is a possibility for a West Nile Virus breakout in Colorado. As a preventative measure, the District has treated the drainage ponds for mosquitoes. Please read below for additional preventive measures that you can take to safe guard you, your family and your neighbors.

The 5 “D”s of Mosquito Bite Prevention

  • Drain standing water in your yard weekly, since that’s where mosquitoes lay eggs.
  • Drain tires, cans, flower pots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, toys and puddles.
  • Dusk and dawn are when mosquitoes that carry the virus are most active, so limit outdoor activities or take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
  • DEET is an effective ingredient to look for in insect repellents. Always follow label instructions carefully.
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants during dawn and dusk or when in areas where mosquitoes are active
