*Notice : Mobile County Health Department - Eastern Equine Encephalitis
The Mobile County Health Department (MCHD) recently reported that Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) was detected in a sentinel chicken on Dauphin Island. These types of tests are checked weekly and MCHD is taking necessary actions to reduce and/or eliminate this health risk. Additional sprayings are underway via land-based vehicles and airplane
along with other treatments to reduce the mosquito population. Health officials have also reached out to island property owners to notify them that previously requested “no spray” areas will be temporarily suspended.
Mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and evening time periods. You can reduce your exposure as follows; (a) Use an EPA-registered repellent with DEET (b) Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts when outdoors (c) Stay/sleep in places with air conditioning and/or window and door screens and (d) Empty/remove standing water within your property.
To report an issue with mosquitoes, contact Vector Services at (251) 690-8124. For additional information visit http://MCHD.org and click on Vector Control listed under “Services”.
