Let’s Beat Mosquitoes!
The Aedes mosquito is new in Southern California and more vicious than the native Culex mosquito.
Aedes bite during the day and go for the legs and ankles instead of buzzing around your ears, so you can't hear them coming.
Aedes hardly need any water to lay their eggs, something as small as a filled bottle cap will do. And the heat speeds up their reproductive cycle. So make sure to avoid any standing water where you live.
Protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquito bites by wearing mosquito repellent when you’re outdoors. Use sprays, wipes, or lotions with the active ingredients DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus.
