Health Tip: Protecting Yourself From Summer Bugs

By on July 19, 2019

Hotter temperatures bring people outdoors, but they also bring insects out of hiding, says NorthShore University. From mosquitoes to ticks, the summer months are a hotbed for bites from these insects.

To protect against summer bugs, NorthShore recommends:

  • Don’t apply perfumes, and avoid scented soaps.
  • Stay away from stagnant water and wooded areas.
  • Avoid wearing bright clothing and flowery prints.
  • Dress appropriately when in a wooded or grassy area.
  • Don’t walk barefoot in the grass.
