Police/Crime Prevention

Mosquito Protection

For personal comfort and health reasons, it is important to take personal precautions to prevent contact with mosquitoes. This includes the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a freshwater species common to tropical and subtropical regions of the world that has been known to transmit dengue fever through a bite from an infected mosquito. Preventive measures include:

  • Dumping standing water in and around homes/vacation rentals, where mosquitoes like to breed, such as coolers, flower pots, buckets or any containers that could retain rainwater.
  • Securing screens on windows and doors, ensuring there are no holes or tears where mosquitoes might gain entry.
  • Using air conditioners when possible.
  • Wearing mosquito repellents with DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus as an active ingredient.
