Spring is here and summer is just around the corner! Whether you’re traveling out of the country or just enjoying the beautiful North Carolina weather at home, be sure to use repellants and other general protection measures against biting mosquitoes. These measures become very important against mosquitoes as you find yourself spending more time outside working in your gardens or flowerbeds, hosting family and friends for cookouts or just relaxing on your porch.
Please read some of the general protective measures and a list of some of the repellants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For more information visit: Protection against Mosquitoes, Ticks, and Other Insects & Arthropods.
