National Mosquito Control Awareness Week is an annual weekly event that Bite-Lite®
endorses each year, and has reported on previously in these News pages around the same time of year. This year's event began June 21st and will end Saturday, June 27, 2015. This year's theme by the American Mosquito Control Association ("AMCA"), who promotes the event, is to tell Mosquitoes to "buzz off.
To promulgate this advice throughout the summer season, when mosquitoes are biting, and either causing irritation or disease, remember to take the necessary steps to protect yourself. You can follow the AMCA's three D's: Drain, Dress, and Defend:
Drain: Empty out water containers at least once a week.
Dress: Wear long sleeves, long pants, and light colored, loose fitting clothing.
Defend: Properly apply approved repellents such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon-eucalyptus.
For candle ambience at your favorite outdoor event, don't forget to bring your Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles!
