You already know that mosquitoes can carry the ever popular Zika virus, but the pesky critters can also carry malaria, dengue fever, West Nile fever and many more.
One of the best and safest ways to avoid mosquito bites is to wear a mosquito repellent. Mosquito repellent helps prevent and control the outbreak of mosquito diseases and more importantly, protect you from getting bit.
The best mosquito repellent is designed to make surfaces unpleasant or unattractive to the insects. Bug sprays that mask the skin odors most attractive to mosquitoes make it possible for people to hide in plain sight. A repellent containing synthetic chemical or natural oils either smells bad for mosquitoes or blinds the receptors mosquitoes use to pick up on skin odors, meaning they aren’t able to locate their prey. h/t zikamosquitorepellent
