Frisco reminds residents to practice ‘The Four D’s’, which are precautionary measures promoted by the Texas Department of State Health Services:
- DRAIN all standing water;
- DRESS in light-colored, long sleeve clothing when outdoors;
- DEET…Use mosquito repellants that contain Deet;
- DUSK OR DAWN… Mosquitoes are most active during dusk and dawn. Avoid outdoor activities during these hours, when possible. Otherwise, make sure you use repellant containing DEET when outdoors during these times.
