How can I protect myself and family from mosquito bites?
To protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites:
- Find an EPA-approved mosquito repellent that is right for you. To help find one that is effective and safe when used by the directions, visit https://www.epa. gov/insect-repellents/find-repellent-right-you
- Keep the screens on your windows and doors in good repair.
- Avoid being outside at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active, but if you must, wear long-sleeved, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing because mosquitoes can bite through tight fitting clothing.
