Hulett Environmental Services recommends the following tips to avoid exposure to mosquitoes.
· Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts and closed-toe shoes to protect the skin
· Minimize outside activity between dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active
· Eliminate areas of standing water around the home, such as flowerpots, birdbaths and baby pools. Mosquitoes only need about ½ inch of water to breed
· Screen all windows and doors, repairing even the smallest holes that could serve as entry points for pests
