West Nile Virus is one of several viruses that can be transmitted to people by mosquitoes. "Taking just a few minutes to remove any standing water from your yard, apply recommended mosquito repellents, and ensure your window and door screens are free of holes can help protect you and your community from this unsafe disease", said Jared Dever, District Manager of the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District.

Ray Callas, M.D. a medical physician here in Beaumont says to help protect against West Nile always wear mosquito repellant when going outdoors, if possible wear long sleeves shirts and trousers, and make sure there is no standing water around your house.
