Mosquitoes can carry serious diseases like West Nile virus. Currently, the risk of contracting West Nile in the Pacific Northwest is extremely low, but that’s not the case in some other parts of the country – or world. That risk could change at any time.
The pesticides in many repellents come with their own risks. Especially if used improperly, some of them may increase risks to people, wildlife and waterways.
Only the adult female mosquitoes suck blood. The rest eat flower nectar and help pollinate plants.
Find additional information from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Environmental Working Group or from your own county’s vector control.
