Hello everyone! Just a quick reminder this time—-since Summer is in full swing, and mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus are in the news more than Brad and Angelina, we would like to give you the AAP recommendations for preventing mosquito bites.
- Use an effective repellant, such as one containing up to 30% DEET, and spray on exposed skin and clothing (for other acceptable repellants, visit EPA.gov…)
- Drain standing water in the yard
- Avoid being outdoors at dusk
Have fun everybody!!
Dr. Chuck, Mr. Bananas, and staff
