 Mosquito School

It may be Summer but the learning is far from over...It ’ s time to get schooled on Mosquito Protection!

Summer is the time that mosquitoes flourish in our warm tropic area, so to help keep you protected from those annoying and potentially dangerous mosquitoes bites, let ’ s review a few small actions you can take to help prevent mosquitoes from turning you into their next meal.

When dealing with Mosquito Protection and Prevention always remember the Five D’s of Mosquito Control:

Dawn & Dusk: The first two “ D ’ s ” of Mosquito Control reminds us that mosquitoes are most active during the times where there is a change in light. Avoid going out during dusk and dawn and you can save yourself a few bites form our neighborhood pests.

Dress: The next “ D ” on our list suggests to dress appropriately when going outside for extended periods of time. By covering your exposed skin, mosquitoes won ’ t have free reign to bite you.

DEET: “ D ” number four stands for DEET, a proven ingredient found in some mosquito repellents that effectively repels mosquitoes. Make sure to purchase mosquito repellent that list DEET as an active ingredient if you want to lessen your chances of getting bitten.

Drain: The final “ D ” in our mnemonic reminds us to drain all containers holding rain and sprinkler water. These static water reserves allow for mosquitoes to lay their eggs in a disturbance free environment causing an increase in the population of these pesky and potentially harmful insects.
