Wear loose, light-coloured clothing (To a mosquito, bright floral prints will make you look like a flower), and avoid heavy floral or fruity fragrances. Mosquitoes find their prey through carbon dioxide emissions, so avoid exercising at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active. Shower frequently during the humid season to get rid of sweat, which is highly attractive to mosquitoes. Eliminate standing water sources — bird baths, puddles, flower pots are a few of the obvious ones. Less obvious is your toilet bowl-keep the lid down!
