Step four: Don’t forget the bug spray!

 If you’re prone to frequent mosquito bites, then you may be familiar with The Five D’s step number four: defend yourself with an effective mosquito repellent.

Using a mosquito repellent is an effective and safe way to keep mosquitoes away when working and playing outdoors.

When selecting a mosquito repellent you should keep a few things in mind:

  • Always read and follow the directions on the insect repellent container, especially when using on young children.
  • Apply the spray to skin surfaces that are not covered and to your clothing. Only a thin layer is needed.
  • Do not put repellent on children’s faces and hands.
  • You can use both sunscreen and repellent when outdoors. Apply the sunscreen first – then the repellent.

Insect repellent is a safe and easy way to ensure your family stays mosquito-bite free.
