3. Try to avoid standing near calm, shaded areas or areas of standing water, and if you have flower pots or other containers outside with standing water, drain them.

5.It’s true that your chances of being seriously harmed by a mosquito bite are low, you might want to put bug spray on your list of items to take on your hiking adventures this summer.
