Ensuring your safety against mosquito bites during the warmer months involves a mix of preventative measures. Utilize EPA-endorsed repellents, wear protective clothing, and consider other strategies to minimize exposure.

For residents seeking the most potent mosquito repellents, products containing DEET or picaridin are typically recommended for their effectiveness and EPA approval.
