How To Prevent Mosquito Bites

Besides being horribly annoying, a mosquito bite can spread diseases, such as dengue, Zika virus, and chikungunya. Those in and around Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano are no strangers to the irritating sensation of a mosquito bite, and with summer on its way, mosquitoes are gearing up for their favorite time of the year. However, you can take these preventative measures to protect you and your family from mosquito bites.

Use Repellant
The Center for Disease Control highly recommends that everyone, particularly children and pregnant women, should prevent mosquito bites by using repellants. You’ll want to look for repellants that use active ingredients such as DEET, picaridin (also called KBR 3023, bayrepel, or icaridin), oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. When picking out a repellant, keep in mind that products with high percentages of active ingredients will last longer but if you’re planning a full day outside, to reapply repellent as directed.

Cover Up
We know. It can get HOT in Collin County. However, on those days when it doesn’t feel like the sun is going to melt your skin off, stay covered up with long sleeves pants as opposed to t-shirts and shorts. When your skin is exposed, you give mosquitoes ample opportunity to bite you. However, when you remain covered up, it’s harder for them to sit down to a meal.

Avoid Mosquito O’Clock
Mosquitoes are most active during dawn and dusk. Therefore, if you can, avoid spending time outside during these high traffic mosquito hours. In cases where you absolutely must be outside during dawn and/or dusk, remember to cover up and use repellant.
