Mosquitoes are known to threat health of children and adults during summertime and it's important to be aware on how to avoid them as much as possible.


To protect yourself or your loved ones from mosquito bites at home, it is best to prevent mosquitoes from getting into your house.


Here are ways you can protect your family from any unwanted contact:


  • Maintain fly screens on windows, doors, vents and chimneys.

  • Use insect surface sprays both inside and outside the house to kill mosquitoes.

  • Use an effective mosquito repellent, containing either picaridin or diethyltoulamide (DEET) on all exposed skin.

  • Remove stagnant water around the house so mosquitoes cannot breed.

  • Change the water in pet drinking bowls, bird baths and vases at least once a week.

  • Check and maintain rainwater tanks and water storage vessels to ensure screens are intact and limit mosquito entry.
