For information on West Nile and its impact in Illinois, see the Illinois Department of Public Health's website. For information on West Nile's impact on the US in general, see the CDC's West Nile site - an excellent web page that shows details on the statistics, surveillance, and control of the Virus. Mosquitoes are most prevalent at dawn, dusk and early evening.
Residents' Responsibilities: Each homeowner should locate and eliminate potential breeding sites by emptying standing water from children's pools, gutters, recycling bins and other artificial containers. Please use residential mosquito control sprays for your yard using sprays that hook up to garden hose or other chemicals found at most hardware and department stores.
Individual Protection: Use mosquito repellent when outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. Be sure window screens provide sufficient protection. If you must be outdoors during these times, wear long-sleeved clothing and pants. Use insect repellent sparingly.
