Protecting Your Children from Mosquitoes

Author: Mosquito Squad of Chicago

Children can be very adventurous, and you may not be able to keep your eye on them 100% of the time. Because of this, your kids may come home with unexpected bumps, bruises, and cuts. They can also come home with mosquito bites if they’re not protected.

You may think that a mosquito bite is harmless, but mosquitoes can transmit dangerous germs that can make your child sick. In the case that your child has a lot of mosquito bites, even if they aren’t infected with diseases, it can be heartbreaking to see them in so much agitation and pain. Trying to get a kid to stop itching and making the mosquito bite worse can be another issue to deal with.

However, you decide to take care of your mosquito problem, make sure that it is safe for your children as they tend to be more sensitive to harmful chemicals. Mosquito Squad Chicago does offer a mosquito control solution that only takes 30 minutes to dry to be safe for your children and pets.

Other ways to protect your children is to ensure that they’re not playing outside at times when mosquitos are most active such as at dawn, dusk, and early evening. When applying insect repellent, make sure that the DEET concentration is less than 30 percent and don’t use it on cuts or around eyes or mouth. If possible, dress your children in long pants and sleeves.
