What can I do to repel mosquitoes?
Use commercial repellents. Check labels for these active ingredients. Cover your skin evenly, mosquitoes will find and bite untreated spots. Use spray repellents on outer clothing as well as the skin. Repellents are sold as aerosols, creams, sticks and liquids. You should keep repellents away from eyes, nostrils and lips. Protection generally lasts 6 hours after application.
