It is the rainy season, and living with it and working with it comes with its peculiarities. Being caught in a downpour without an umbrella or a raincoat leaves you soaking wet. Another peculiarity of the season is the upsurge in mosquitoes and diseases caused by different species.
Here are some precaution tips to avoid mosquito bites this rainy season;
1) Get rid of any standing water near your home.
Heavy downpour leads to water being stored inside unused tires, pots, holes, dust bins, and other materials not in use. Get rid of this stagnant water immediately to prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
2) Keep your doors and windows closed
The atmosphere is humid during the rainy season, a favourable environment for mosquitoes to breed. Hence, it’s advisable to cover up your windows with thin netting or door beads to prevent mosquitoes from getting inside the house. Keep all the doors and windows closed during the rainy season, including your car doors.
3) Use mosquito repellent sprays and cream
This is one of the easiest and 99.9% sure methods to keep yourself away from harmful mosquito bites. Mosquito repellant sprays and creams can protect you from mosquito bites for more than 8 hours. This mosquito repellent fits easily into your travel kits and is available as a spray, cream, gel, wristbands, patches, and roll-ons.
4) cover exposed skin
If you're outside at a time of day when mosquitoes are particularly active, such as the evening, cover your skin by wearing long sleeves and trousers to avoid mosquito bites. Thicker fabrics and looser fits offer more protection than thin clothing that fits tightly.
Avoiding getting bitten by mosquitoes has always been a concern in places where mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever, malaria, and yellow fever are prevalent.
Following the above precautions will keep you safe from any mosquito-borne diseases.
