Keeping Your Family Safe
How can you and your family avoid mosquitoes when the weather is warm and outdoor activities are plentiful? Know that mosquitoes are active between dusk and dawn when the air is calm. If you do have activities early or late during the day, make your outdoor area a mosquito-free zone. Set out Geraniol or Citronella candles to repel mosquitoes, spray natural repellents that are animal friendly, and keep away from water sources like pools or ponds.
While repellents can also be effective in deterring mosquitoes from biting, it is also a good idea to minimize skin surface by wearing long-sleeved shirts and long trousers.
