Don’t let the pesky bugs ruin your outdoor fun. Try these simple ways to combat these pests from taking over your yard:

· Lighten up – wear lighter color garments as bugs are attracted to darker clothing.

· Don’t sweat it – bugs such as mosquitoes can smell sweat and carbon dioxide from breathing so try to refrain from heavy outdoor exercise whenever possible.

· Flip the lids – check containers in your yard. If any of them are holding water, flip them over.

Share these tips with neighbors. If mosquitoes overtake the house next door, they will likely move into your home next. Discovering what works and sharing best practices will make for a happier, less-itchy neighborhood.
