Health Tip: Protecting Yourself From Summer Bugs

(HealthDay News) -- Hotter temperatures bring people outdoors, but they also bring insects out of hiding, says NorthShore University. From mosquitoes to ticks, the summer months are a hotbed for bites from these insects.

To protect against summer bugs, NorthShore recommends:

  • Don't apply perfumes, and avoid scented soaps.
  • Stay away from stagnant water and wooded areas.
  • Avoid wearing bright clothing and flowery prints.
  • Dress appropriately when in a wooded or grassy area.
  • Don't walk barefoot in the grass.
