You may not be able to get rid of mosquitoes entirely, but you can help keep them away with a combination of tips for around the home and the right products. In addition to stagnant water where they breed, mosquitoes are attracted to perspiration, body heat, and the carbon dioxide given off by your breath. Which means the first step in fighting mosquitoes is to eliminate the things they’re attracted to. And since we don’t recommend you stay inside all summer, a personal or area mosquito repellent product can also help if you want to enjoy the outdoors.

Don’t Be a Mosquito Magnet
