Dress in Long Sleeves and Pants
When enjoying the outdoors, choose to wear long sleeves and pants to discourage mosquitoes and ticks from biting.
Wear Insect Repellent
Use an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellent with one of these active ingredients: DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), Para-menthane-diol (PMD) or 2-undecanone.
Drain Standing Water
Drain anything in your yard that collects water or allows water to stand. Mosquitoes only need a small amount of water to breed.
Mosquitoes will bite any time of the day. Be sure to check and repair screens on doors/windows and keep them closed as much as possible.
