It is that time of year to be mindful of mosquitos the diseases they may carry.
Oklahoma health officials are warning that everyone should take precautions against diseases carried by mosquitoes and ticks.
The health department is reminding residents that mosquitos can carry West Nile Virus.
In some cases the illness can be fatal, and its symptoms often include fever, headache, dizziness, and muscle weakness.
They say you should get rid of standing water, like in a bowl on the porch.
Another good measure to take, perhaps the easiest, is just to wear plenty of bug spray, especially during dawn and dusk.
Officials say it is important to do a full-body check for ticks after being outside.
They says removing ticks that have bitten you quickly can help prevent any diseases.
