Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile Virus are both mosquito-born infections that are transmissible to humans through mosquito bites. The most important measure to prevent mosquito bites is to avoid outdoor activities during the hours around the dawn of the day and around dusk/sunset.
The Longmeadow Board of Health also strongly recommends the following measures to prevent mosquito bites:
1. Employ personal protection to prevent mosquito bites:
2. Activate/recheck your property to ensure environmental controls are in place to prevent mosquito breeding or mosquito bites:
Aerial/truck-mounted pesticide spraying and/or the application of larvicide in storm drains will only be undertaken should these measures be recommended by the Mass. Department of Public Health. Public notification for initiation of these measures is required.
