An increase in mosquito population may be in store for Tennessee due to flooding.  Standing water provides the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.

 Tennesseans should take precautions to protect themselves from West Nile Virus and other diseases transmitted by mosquito bites.  Here are some simple tips to help avoid mosquito bites:

  •  The most likely time for bites is dawn and dusk. If you must be outside during these times, use insect repellent, wear long sleeves, long pants and socks.
  • Eliminate standing water near your home. Even a bottle cap of water is enough for mosquitoes to breed.
  •  Keep windows and doors closed or cover them with screen to prevent entry to your home.

 Mosquito populations in Tennessee are at their peak May through October.
