To avoid being bitten by mosquitoes:
– Wear long, loose fitting light-coloured clothes outdoors
– Use repellents containing picaridin or DEET on exposed skin
– Avoid mosquito-prone areas, especially at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are more active and likely to bite
– Ensure that insect screens fitted to doors and windows around the home are in good condition
– Reduce mosquito numbers by getting rid of stagnant water around the home or campsites.
