The Florida Department of Health is educating Florida’s youth on mosquito bite prevention and enlisting their help in the fight against mosquito-borne illnesses in a new campaign that encourages kids to “Spill the Water!” With the help of state and local partners, the department is educating Florida kids on the dangers of mosquito-borne illnesses, teaching them to spill standing water around their home this summer and cover up their skin with clothing and repellant before they head outside to play. Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one teaspoon or one bottle cap of water so eliminating sources of standing water is critical to keep mosquitoes from multiplying. To help educate Florida’s kids and involve them in the fight against mosquito-borne illnesses, the department has launched SpillTheWater.com, which is full of resources tailored to students, parents and teachers.
