Mosquito season has begun, and residents should remember to take safety precautions to avoid them, according to a Denton County Public Health news release.

DCPH began mosquito surveillance on Tuesday and is urging residents to protect themselves from mosquitos. Remember the three Ds:

  • Drain standing water in your yard and neighborhood to eliminate mosquito breeding sites
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants, and spray thin clothing with repellant
  • Defend with an EPA-approved repellent

There were 11 confirmed human cases of West Nile Virus last year in Denton County.
