Wondering how to prevent yourself from getting mosquito bites? We are here to help! Here are five tips on how to prevent mosquito and tick bites!
Tip One: Use bug spray!
The best bug spray to use is bug spray containing deet. The reason this is the best bug spray to use is because deet is known as one of the few chemicals to actually repel mosquitos, and some bug sprays containing deet are registered by the EPA.
Tip Two: Tuck your socks!
Wear long pants and socks, and tuck your socks to prevent bites! (transition).
Tip Three: Do a tick check after being outdoors!
When you do the tick check, make sure to specifically check your legs below the knee line.
Tip Four: Check outside of your house for breeding areas!
Look for standing water in places around your yard such as pots filled with water, old tires, etc.
Tip Five: Do not apply treatments to your yard by yourself!
