4 Ways To Prevent Mosquito Bites!

4 Ways To Prevent Mosquito Bites!

By following these suggestions, you can effectively shield your skin from both harmful UV rays and pesky mosquitoes. Enjoy your time outdoors with peace of mind, knowing you've taken the necessary precautions for skin protection. 

Mosquitoes are most active from dusk to dawn, so it’s most important to apply repellent when you go out during those hours. However, in many areas, mosquitoes also bite during the day, so be prepared any time you’ll be outdoors for an extended period. Here's how:


Untitled designWear Protective Clothing

Cover up exposed skin by wearing long sleeves, pants, and socks to reduce the amount of exposed skin for mosquitoes to target. This is not a perfect solution with full protection, as they can still bite you through some clothing. However, limiting the amount of exposed skin will also lessen the number of potential bites you receive.


Mosquitoes Are Attracted to Perfume wearing perfume

You may love a fruity, floral, or woodsy scent, but here’s some unfortunate news: mosquitoes do, too. Mosquitoes are attracted to perfumes, colognes, and even scented lotions. If you're going to be spending some time outside, be wary of any scents you are applying to your body.


Standing Water 

By diligently removing standing water and keeping your property dry, you can significantly reduce the mosquito population and create a more enjoyable outdoor environment for you and your loved ones.

Mosquitoes have a knack for turning any container into their preferred breeding spot. To thwart their breeding efforts, it's crucial to keep certain items dry. Here are some common objects that can become hotbeds for mosquitoes if not properly attended to:

  1. Birdbaths: Regularly empty and refill birdbaths to prevent standing water and discourage mosquito egg-laying. 

  2. Flowerpots and Water Buckets: water bucket - ssEnsure flowerpots and buckets are emptied of any stagnant water, as they can attract mosquitoes looking for a place to breed.

  3. Garbage Cans: Keep mosquitoes at bay by regularly drying out and treating garbage cans with insecticide. Additionally, securely close the lids to prevent access.

  4. Play Equipment, including Kiddie Pools: kiddie pool - ssAfter each use, thoroughly dry out play equipment and kiddie pools to eliminate any standing water that may entice mosquitoes.
