Binder Park Zoo advises zoo visitors to take these precautionary measures to protect themselves against Eastern Equine Encephalitis-
Use repellent: When outdoors, use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus on exposed skin and/or clothing. The repellent/insecticide permethrin can be used on clothing to protect through several washes. Always follow the directions on the package.
Wear protective clothing: Wear long sleeves and pants when weather permits
The zoo will have complimentary bug spray stations located at the Entrance Gate, International Depot, Zawadi Traders (African Village), Twiga Overlook and Pride Provisions (lion exhibit) for guests to use.
