We all get bitten by insects. Mosquitoes, horse flies, bugs, spiders, ticks, bees as well as wasps feed on our blood and leave us with painful swellings or an itchy sensation. Sometimes these may develop into serious complication requiring immediate medical attention.
It is always believed that prevention is far better than cure. So, if we can take some precautionary measures, then we can protect ourselves as well as our families from these dreadful insects from biting us.
The following tips are suggested and recommended:
§ Do not keep any stagnant water as mosquitoes breed in them.
§ Use insect repellants. It’s probably the best option. However, when using repellants apply a sunscreen before. Pregnant women should not use repellants. Moreover, do not apply repellants on burned skin.
