Mosquito bites

Mosquito Bites - There are a few things in this world that I really can’t stand. First you have teenage drivers, who can barely stay on the road, and then you have elderly drivers who stay on the road but don’t exceed 22 miles per hour. Oh, and finally you have mosquito bites. These three things are irksome to say the least. Now, I’ve figured out a way to get rid of the teenage and elderly drivers, but it involves a few tire spikes and loads of duct tape. So who’s with me Okay, so my plan probably wouldn’t work, but it makes for a great fantasy. Anyway, I did find a reasonable way to avoid those nasty mosquito bites. It’s all about the contemporary bug sprays. Does the word DEET mean anything to you

I have dreaded mosquito bites every summer ever since I was a kid in elementary school. I hate getting attacked by bugs. For me, mosquito bites and tick bites are the worst. Just take your pick on which one is more horrific. After all, we’re not just talking about a few itchy red bumps in this day and age. With bug bites can come some serious aftermath. As far as ticks go, I’m primarily referring to Lime Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Have you heard of or acquired either one of these illnesses I recently found a Deer tick on my arm, which immediately sent up a red flag in my mind. I couldn’t help but think Lime Disease. These are the ticks that are notorious for carrying it. I was treated immediately just to be on the safe side. It’s not prudent to fool around with these afflictions.

Now, when it comes to Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, you’d better get to a hospital quickly. This illness can end you within a few weeks if not taken care of. So anyway, that’s ticks now days. As far as mosquito bites are concerned, this is also something to think about before frolicking in the summer sun. Be sure to put on plenty of bug spray with Deet. This will keep all those nasty insects at bay. Make certain your little ones are protected also. The West Nile Virus is becoming more prominent and there’s no cure for this. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
