Warmer temperatures in Santa Clara County may soon bug residents – literally, county officials said.
The warming trend could result in increased mosquito and tick activity, so residents need to be diligent in inspecting and maintaining their properties, not to mention themselves and their pets, according to the city’s Vector Control District.
To keep mosquitoes from reproducing and spreading West Nile Virus, the public is urged to eliminate standing water. This includes pet water bowls, which should be replaced frequently; birdbaths, which should be refilled weekly; and water in potted plant saucers.
