How to Avoid Mosquito Bites
We’ve all experienced the discomfort of a mosquito bite and most of us would like to avoid them at all costs. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to minimize your chances of being bitten by a mosquito.
To avoid mosquito bites, you should:
- Avoid going outside at dawn and dusk as these are the most popular mosquito breeding times
- Wear light-colored pants, thick socks, close-toed shoes, and long-sleeved shirts to limit your exposure
- Apply mosquito repellents
- Remove standing water sources from your yard (birdbaths, buckets, etc.)
- Avoid wearing floral fragrances and perfumes
- Schedule professional mosquito control
Bringing in a team of training mosquito control professionals is the best way to protect yourself against an infestation. Trained professionals know exactly which areas to focus their treatment on to deliver noticeable results.
Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?
While not all mosquito bites are dangerous, they have the potential to be. Worldwide, mosquitoes are known to carry and transmit mosquito-borne illnesses caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites to 700 million people each year.
Some of the most common diseases transmitted by mosquito bites include:
- Zika virus
- West Nile virus
- Dengue fever
- Chikungunya virus
- Yellow fever
Mosquito-borne illnesses range from mild to deadly, which makes paying attention to your symptoms very important. If you are experiencing any symptoms of a mosquito-borne illness (such as fever, headache, rash, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea, or muscle pain) it is recommended that you seek medical assistance right away.
