Help Stop the Spread of Mosquito-Borne Diseases

Applying Bug Spray

The invasive Aedes mosquito now resides in every Orange County city. We need to work together to combat these aggressive day-biting mosquitoes. Residents should take the following precautions to help reduce the chances of being bitten by mosquitoes: Tip, Toss and Take Action

  • Dump and drain any containers filled with water at least once a week
  • Clean and scrub bird baths and pet water bowls weekly
  • Dump water from potted plant saucers
  • Do not transport or share plant clippings rooted in water
  • Drill a hole or puncture containers to eliminate standing water

To prevent mosquito bites, the District offers the following tips:

  • Apply mosquito repellents to exposed skin before going outdoors; reapply as recommended
  • Wear repellent containing DEET®, Picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus
  • Close all unscreened doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home or space; repair broken or damaged screens
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and opt for lighter-colored clothing

Residents are encouraged to sign-up for District email notifications. For more information, visit
