Preventing Mosquito Bites

It’s going to be a great weekend for being outside and Bexar County Officials are reminding everyone to protect yourself from mosquito bites.

Not only can they be itchy and painful, they can also make you real sick. There’s so many mosquito borne ilnesses like Zika and West Nile so using insect repellent can protect you and your family.

Bexar County’s Monica Ramos says along with the repellent, you should also look for areas of standing water because that’s where mosquitoes breed. If you find some in flower pots, garbage cans or outdoor toys, dump it out.

Wearing long sleeves and pants when doing yard is another useful tip being offered by the County.
