EPA Releases New Resource Directory on Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes

Contains information on prevention methods, repellents and pesticides.

| September 13, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reorganized its resources on controlling mosquitoes and preventing bites on its website, the agency announced. 

Though the summer is winding down, the EPA advises the public that mosquitoes can still present a serious risk to public health. The new resource directory includes prevention methods such as removal of standing water, tips to prevent bites and information about pesticides commonly used in mosquito control programs.

"The agency understands that Americans are concerns about recent increases in mosquito-borne diseases across the United States, especially the West Nile virus, and is committed to helping people understand how they can be more vigilant in protecting themselves from risks posed by mosquitoes," the EPA said in a statement.
