Watch For Bites When Exercising

When out for a run or walk, your clothing probably reveals your skin since you need lighter clothing. Don’t be tricked into thinking mosquitoes won’t bite you just because you’re moving. The truth is, they can latch onto you even if you are speed walking. Mosquitos are attracted by sweat, so be on high alert during and after your workout. You can prevent a mosquito bite by either working out indoors or frequently checking for mosquito bites. Mosquitoes prefer areas with more sweat, so check areas like the back of your neck, forehead, and arms. A sweat-resistant mosquito repellant is also a smart choice before going for a jog.
