Wear Protective Clothing

Using a good repellant and spraying your clothes with permethrin will give you great protection from those pesky mosquitos. However, there is one last element to protecting yourself. How can you get a mosquito bite if they can’t bite you in the first place? More often than not, people will wear loose clothes during the hotter months. If you want to prevent mosquito bites, wear clothes that cover more of your skin. This can include long sleeve shirts, pants, and long socks. You can find these types of clothes that are made out of breathable materials. This way, you don’t have to sweat to death during the summer months while protecting yourself from bites. Be sure to protect your loved ones and kids as well.
