Summer is just around the corner and with it comes warmer weather, summer camp, and...mosquitoes! With concerns about the Zika Virus on everyone's minds, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center is taking the following precautions to protect its visitors from the local mosquito population:

- Encouraging visitors and campers to cover their arms and legs with long-sleeved shirts and pants
- Limiting standing water in pots, dog bowls, and other man-made water holding receptacles
- Providing EPA-registered, 25% DEET bug spray for campers and visitors

If you would like more information on EPA-registered bug sprays, or want to know more about Zika Virus prevention, check out the CDC's Zika Basics PDF.
