As the threat of West Nile Virus spreads to several areas of the country, including recent cases in Louisiana, the skin/itch experts at the Lanacane Itch Information Center offer some tips to help keep the mosquitoes at bay:
When going outdoors for prolonged periods of time, e.g., camping or hiking, make sure to pack insect repellent and apply it as directed.
Identify and eliminate sources of stagnant water, such as empty plant pots, buckets, or children's tire swings, which can collect rain and support mosquito breeding.
Try to avoid being outside at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active and feeding.
