Important Information about Mosquito-borne Illnesses

Governor Sununu and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services have issued a public health threat declaration for the southern part of the State for both the West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).  All four Timberlane towns have been named in this declaration.

As of today’s date, there are no reports of these mosquito-borne illnesses in the Timberlane communities; however, this could change at any time.

We want to remind everyone to continue to take steps to prevent being bitten by mosquitoes and to eliminate standing water on their property. Homeowners should check any containers holding water in the yard. Check kiddie pools, dog bowls, canoes, boats, tarps, tires, trash barrels, bird baths, etc. To get rid of mosquito larvae, get rid of the water. Store items inside; turn over the container; change the water frequently in bird baths and dog bowls. It is imperative that we eliminate mosquito breeding areas to help reduce the risk. It is reported that it takes two hard freezes to kill all the mosquitoes. The risk is not zero until there is snow on the ground.

It is recommended that residents use the utmost caution regarding exposure to mosquitoes. You can protect yourself and your family with a few simple steps.

  • Reduce outdoor activities from 1/2 hour before dusk until 8:00 AM.
  • Use mosquito repellent containing DEET.
  • Wear long sleeves and pants.
  • Check around your home for standing water and remove it.
  • Ensure window and door screens fit properly so that mosquitoes cannot enter your home.

Timberlane has begun proactive measures that include conducting risk analysis on a regular basis to make decisions about outdoor activity as needed.
