Here are some tips to keep mosquitoes away while you enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

Keep mosquitoes away from you:

  1. Do not wear perfume because mosquitoes are attracted to sweet-smelling aromas.
  2. Wear loose-fitting long sleeve shirts and long pants if you are spending time outside during the evening hours, because you create a barrier between you and them.
  3. Use DEET (diethyltoluamide) bug spray if there seem to be a large amount of mosquitoes bothering you. Use a more natural bug repellent if there aren’t as many around.

  1. Use citronella candles around your yard or campsite to keep mosquitoes away. While many might say that these don’y repel bugs successfully, the candles are a classic way to repel mosquitoes.
  2. Put lighting further away from your location because bugs are attracted to light and will come after you if you are close to it. You can light a campfire to repel mosquitoes because they are not big fans of them.
  3. Trim the grass and bushes in your yard because mosquitoes love to spend time in tall grass during hot days. They will love it when you decide to venture into your overgrown yard.

You can still have a fun summer if you follow some of these tips to keeping mosquitoes away from you and your location.
