In Florida, mosquito-borne illness is something to be mindful of, especially during this time of year. Mosquitos can carry a variety of diseases, but there are precautions that you can take to reduce your risk of being bitten.

Florida Health advises –

  • DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying
  • COVER your skin with clothing and use mosquito repellent.
  • COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out.
