Tips For Preventing Tick & Mosquito Bites

Ticks and mosquitoes become more active as the weather gets warmer. If you will be enjoying outdoor activities during the spring and summer, there are certain steps you can take to protect yourself from these pests. Below are some tips that will help you avoid tick and mosquito bites.

Apply Insect Repellent

You can keep ticks and mosquitoes at a distance by using insect repellent. To ensure proper application, follow the instructions located on the label. It is important to reapply the insect repellent as needed.

Dress Appropriately

When it is warm outside, you may want to wear shorts and short-sleeved shirts. However, wearing pants and a long-sleeved shirt can keep your skin protected from ticks and mosquitoes. In addition, it is a good idea to wear socks and boots instead of sandals. 

Stay Away From Tall Grass

Ticks and mosquitoes are often found in areas of tall grass because it provides them with the perfect shelter and hiding spot. Be sure to steer clear of any areas with tall grass. That way, you will be less likely to come in contact with these types of pests.
