Preventing Mosquito Bites

Personal Protection

Transmission prevention involves decreasing the chances of mosquito bites. This can be done by avoiding outdoor activities after dark, when the mosquitoes are most active, wearing protective clothing (long sleeves and pants, etc.), and using repellents that contain DEET as its active ingredients (ask your parents).
