Ways to Protect Yourself
- Limit time spent outdoors at dawn or dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.
- Wear lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and long pants while outdoors.
- Spray clothing with insect repellent since mosquitoes may bite through clothing.
- Install or repair window and door screens to keep mosquitoes out.
- Apply insect repellent sparingly to exposed skin. Always read and follow product directions.
