Be on the Lookout for Mosquitoes


Mosquitoes can spread germs that can make you very sick and may even cause death. Protect yourself and your loved ones by avoiding mosquito bites:

  • Use bug spray when outdoors
  • Wear long sleeves and other clothing to help reduce mosquito bites
  • Stay indoors when mosquitoes are most active (sunset to sunrise)
  • Install or repair door and window screens to keep mosquitoes out of your home
  • Remove standing water from around your home (in bird baths, tires, bottles or cans) so mosquitoes can't breed there

Information about West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is available by calling the Massachusetts Department of Public Health information line at 1-866-MASS-WNV (1-866-627-7968), the Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800 or 2-1-1. Learn more about the 2-1-1 program in your area.
