Cities across North Texas recommend residents take precautions against mosquito bites by reducing outdoor activity during evening and nighttime hours.

People who are outside during these times should cover their arms and legs and use a mosquito repellent.

Residents should eliminate standing water to prevent mosquito breeding and the spread of West Nile Virus.

Breeding places for mosquitoes include swimming pools that are not kept clean, stagnant ponds, pet watering dishes, birdbaths, potted plants, old tires, empty containers, toys and clogged rain gutters and French drains. Standing water should be eliminated promptly, as mosquitoes can grow from egg to adult in as little as seven days.

To report standing water or mosquito problems in Dallas, residents can call 3-1-1.
