How to Avoid Mosquitoes this Summer

As the weather heats up and people begin to enjoy their summer, everyone wants to prevent mosquitoes from ruining their summertime fun.

According to Chehaw Director of Education Jackie Entz, you should keep your lawn cut short. Mosquitoes like to hide in tall grass.

Another way is to empty out bird baths, rain barrels or anything that is still holding water after it rains. She said "tip and toss" to kill the larva.

"There are many different types of plants that you can put around your yard," said Entz. "Like citronella or even basil. The same basil that you cook with. By planting those, they help to keep the mosquitoes away."

Mosquitos often stay in shaded, wet, or dark areas. And when they bite you, you'll feel it moments later.

Officials with Chehaw park said if you have been bitten, do not scratch the bite, because it can lead to infections.

Mosquito's can carry diseases such as Zika and West Nile Virus, which can be dangerous.

The best way to protect against their bite, reach for the bug spray with the ingredient DEET. 

Hopefully, this will help you have a mosquito free summer because their bite can carry disease concerns.
