(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.
