5 Tips to Avoid Mosquito Bites

Mosquitoes are annoying, and they can be dangerous, too. They are responsible for transmitting blood-borne illnesses and serious diseases.

Here are a few tips to keep mosquitoes away:

• Wear insect repellent when you go outside. Look for products that contain either DEET or picaridin as the active ingredient.

• Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and a hat. If mosquitoes can’t find your skin, they can’t bite you.

• Wear light colors. Mosquitoes seem more attracted to dark colors.

• Mosquitoes are also attracted by some odors. Avoid fragrances in your soaps, shampoos and detergents.

• Avoid still or standing water. That’s where mosquitoes hatch.
