Personal Mosquito Control Tips
Whenever you decide to travel to parts of the country that are warm and humid, it is very important that you ensure you, your family and your pets are fully protected from potentially dangerous mosquitoes.
Mosquito control while away starts by protecting the body whenever you’re outdoors during peak mosquito times (including dawn, dusk and the early evening).
Some additional and simple tips for avoiding mosquitoes when you’re outdoors include:
- Wearing light colored, loose clothing
- Covering as much of the skin as possible
- Applying insect repellant to any exposed areas of the skin
- Utilizing citronella candles whenever possible
