HORSE SENSE

Precautions

Horse owners should take the following precautions against West Nile virus:

Eliminate standing water on your property to prevent mosquito breeding.

House horses inside at dawn, dusk and night, which are peak mosquito times.

Avoid leaving lights on inside horse stables in the evening or overnight.

Place incandescent bulbs away from the perimeter of stables.

Use fans to create air movement over stabled horses.

Remove all birds, including chickens, that are in or close to stables.

Use mosquito repellent on horses.

Fog stables with pesticide in the evening.

Check property for dead blue jays and crows and report them to the local health department.
