Fight the BiteWorried about mosquitoes this year? You’re not alone – experts say this season is going to be a high pressure summer for these pests. There are a couple of things you can do to fight the bite.
Remember that mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn so you may want to avoid spending time outdoors during that time. But if you cannot resist hanging out on the porch to watch a gorgeous sunset, you can choose from a variety of repellents on the market. The CDC recommends that you use a product with an EPA-approved ingredient, such as DEET or Picaridin. There are also products on the market made with Lemon Eucalyptus. Remember to always read and follow the label.
