Fight the Bite

The best way to fight the bite, WCCHD recommends the 3-Ds of mosquito safety:

  • Drain standing water in flower pots, pet dishes, or clogged gutters so mosquitoes don’t have a place to breed and treat water that can’t be drained,
  • Defend by using an EPA-approved insect repellent, and
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors.

For large bodies of water, WCCHD recommends: 
  • Change water in wading pools and birdbaths several times a week.
  • Use mosquito dunks with larvicide for water that can’t be emptied or covered.
  • Keep backyard pools and hot tubs properly chlorinated and free of debris.
  • Screen rain barrels and openings to water tanks or cisterns.

Visit the Williamson County and Cities Health District page here to find more information on how you can Fight the Bite!
In case you missed it:
A deceased bat found in the area of Lynnwood Trail/Brushy Creek Rd. in Cedar Park, TX tested positive for rabies earlier this week.

At this time, there is no known direct human or animal contact with the bat and it is also unclear how long the bat was in the area it was located.

Rabies is a deadly virus spread to people from the saliva of infected animals. It can cause fever, vomiting, muscle weakness, drooling and convulsions.

We want to take this time to remind you not to touch stray or unknown animals/wildlife. Please make sure your pet’s rabies vaccines are up to date to protect you and your family.

It is extremely important that if you believe you, your pets, or anyone you know has come into contact with one of these animals, whether it is dead or alive, that you contact Animal Control immediately.

Please contact the Cedar Park Animal Control Unit at (512) 260-4622 or the Texas Department of State Health Services Zoonosis Control Program at (254) 778-6744 if you have any questions.
