Protect yourself from West Nile

In late summer and early fall mosquitoes can carry diseases such as West Nile virus. Mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus are endemic to Louisville. You can help to guard against West Nile by wearing insect repellant if you’re going outdoors and by removing sources of standing water on your property where disease carrying mosquitoes can breed.

Information on how to protect yourself, your home and your pets from West Nile virus can be found here.
