Don't Let Mosquitoes Take a Bite Out of Your Summer

Mosquitoes can be a real nuisance. Luckily, there are things we can all do to take the bite out of mosquito season.

Remember the four Ds:

  1. Drain your property of unwanted standing water.
  2. Dusk/dawn are the times of day when you should take extra care to protect yourself from their bite.
  3. Dress appropriately. Wear light-coloured and loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves to ward off the pests.
  4. Defend yourself against mosquito bites by using repellent wisely. Be sure to read the labels first.
