HOW TO PREVENT MOSQUITO BITES
According to the CDC, there are over 200 types of mosquitos that live in the United States. While they all can be a nuisance, the 3 most common mosquitos that can spread diseases in the US are Aedes species, Culex species, and Anopheles species. Families across the country face a heightened risk of potential exposure to the vector-borne diseases like West Nile virus, EEE, Dengue Fever, and Zika virus.
Avoid making mosquito habitats:
With the warmer weather, mosquitoes and other biting insects become more active. Mosquitos lay their eggs in moist soil or standing water. After heavy rain, be sure to clear your backyard of any stagnant water that may have filled your potted plants, garbage bins, in items around your shed, or children’s playground. In addition, be sure to repair any holes in your window screens to keep mosquitos from getting indoors.
Wear proper clothing:
Experts suggest wearing long sleeves and pants to form a protective barrier against insect bites. Additionally, mosquitos can be attracted to heat retained by dark clothing. Wear lighter-colored clothing to help reflect heat, so mosquitoes are less likely to notice you. Treat your clothing with Ranger Ready Permethrin 0.5% as an important layer of protection from mosquitos.
Use effective repellent:
To ensure your family enjoys the outdoors, while remaining safe and healthy, use Ranger Ready Picaridin 20% body-worn repellent for protection from mosquitos.
