Mosquito & Vector Borne Resources


Harris County Public Health reminds you to protect yourself and your loved ones by following these simple steps:

  • Reduce mosquito breeding sites around your home by emptying, removing, or covering any water-holding containers.
  • Use an EPA-registered insect repellent when outdoors.
  • If possible, wear light-colored clothing, long-sleeve shirts, pants, and socks.
