Culver City just posted that they have positive identification of West Nile Virus in a dead bird. This and many other dangerous diseases can be transmitted to pets and people from a mosquito feeding on our blood. There are some very basic and easy steps to prevent these diseases.
1) Avoid being outside at dusk and dawn. This is the time that mosquitos are out and most active. If you have to be out wear long sleeves and full length pants. Use protective sprays like Deet.
2) Make sure you do not have standing water in and around your home. This can be in an empty flower pot, the way the gutter slopes in front of your home or overwatering your garden.
An ounce of prevention is worth alot more then a pound a cure and a heck of alot more economical. Save yourself the money and a migrane !
