Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean mosquitoes have packed up and left.
According to the Arkansas Department of Health, just because the weather is a bit cooler doesn’t mean you should stop protecting yourself and your family from mosquitoes.
Warm days can bring the biting pests back out, the ADH says.
In addition to their stings, mosquitoes also carry the risk of West Nile virus as well as infections like Eastern equine encephalitis.
The best way to protect yourself from mosquito bites the ADH says is to practice the “Three Ds.”
