Beat the Bugs
The pesty bugs of summer are one of the few downfalls to this time of year, but we have some helpful tips that will keep you and your family itch-free for the warm summer nights.
1.) Avoid woody and grassy areas since these can be breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
2.) Don’t wear scented perfumes or soaps as these attract bugs.
3.) Wear long sleeves and pants whenever possible.
4.) Remove containers with standing water (flower pots and outdoor pet dishes) which can also be breeding grounds for bugs.
5.) Use insect repellent according to the directions on the back of the container and avoid any contact with the face.
