During the summer, you’d prefer that nothing bothers your outdoor lifestyle, but we often don’t have that luxury in our region. Due to a variety of environmental factors, the Northeast becomes a haven for mosquitoes during the summer months, threatening the outdoor lifestyles of millions. A shifting climate and a variety of mosquito species that prefer to feed on humans have made our part of the world less of a summer paradise than before, and that’s not even the worst part. While we typically associate mosquito-borne diseases with continents like Asia and Africa, the U.S. may be on its way to having a real health crisis in the future due to mosquitoes. For example, diseases like West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) are not very common in the Northeast, but our changing climate could allow for the proliferation of these illnesses in coming years. Thus, considering how to defend against mosquitoes is of paramount importance, at the very least to prevent annoying bites. So, what are some easy ways to keep mosquitoes away on your summer outings?
Although this option may not be ideal to some, wearing pants and long-sleeved shirts is an easy way to keep mosquitoes from biting your skin. This way, you can create a barrier between you and the insect attempting to steal your blood. The only downside of this method is the discomfort of wearing long clothing in the summer heat. Fortunately, this isn’t the only way to defend against mosquitoes.
Insect repellant is probably the most convenient option for those looking to keep mosquitoes away on summer outings. Ideally, you’ll want to purchase a spray that has at least 20% DEET to provide the maximum amount of protection. Mosquitoes simply can’t stand DEET, making this chemical the gold standard for personal mosquito control. For those looking to defend their entire yard against mosquitoes, however, another mosquito control option is available!
