Fort Bend County has begun spraying for mosquitoes and will continue nightly until the entire county has been covered.
However, preventing the spread of mosquito-borne illness and diseases is a collaborative effort, and residents and business owners alike must take proactive steps to help mitigate and eliminate mosquito habitats by adhering to the "4 Ds":
- Dawn/Dusk: limit activities outside at the times mosquitoes are most active.
- Dress: wear long sleeves and pants when outside.
- DEET: use repellent containing DEET.
- Drain: drain standing water in and around your property.
