Health Tip: Protecting Yourself From Summer Bugs

(HealthDay News) — 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:

  1. Don’t apply perfumes, and avoid scented soaps.

  2. Stay away from stagnant water and wooded areas.

  3. Avoid wearing bright clothing and flowery prints.

  4. Dress appropriately when in a wooded or grassy area.

  5. Don’t walk barefoot in the grass.
