We have all been hearing on the news about the mosquito-borne Zika virus that is spreading around the world. Zika is relatively harmless for most of us, but it has been linked to birth defects in babies born to mothers who were infected with the virus while pregnant. Only a few cases have been reported in the United States thus far, the virus is expected to spread rapidly as the temperatures rise.
As the mosquito season approaches, here are some important steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from the Zika virus:
Cover Exposed Skin
Even in summer months, it's important to keep your skin covered if your family spends a lot of time outdoors. Loose-fitting, light colored clothing will protect you from bites
Using insect repellents before going outdoors will help reduce your number of mosquito bites. Do not use repellants on infants and use caution when applying to childrens hands, face, or any irritated skin. Natural alternatives like catnip oil, cinnamon leaf oil, and citrus can also be used as repellents.
Close the Door!
Keep the inside of your home mosquito free. Check screens on your porches, doors, and windows to make sure the are no holes or splits. Make sure to leave all doors and windows that do not have screens shut.
Eliminate Breeding Grounds
Prevent mosquitoes from multiplying outside your home by emptying, cleaning, or covering containers that collect water. Make sure that buckets, flower pots, bird baths, watering cans, and gutters are drained. This step plays an important role in controlling the mosquito population in your yard.
