Bug Safety

No matter where you live or work in the world, stinging and biting insects and other pests are always nearby. Some are native to their current surroundings while others were imported, either intentionally or accidentally.Summer Safety - bugs

Some insects which were imported have no local predators and their populations skyrocket. Be sure to protect yourself and your family against bites. 

You can do this by wearing light colored clothing and avoiding perfumes that attract insects. If bitten, be sure to treat the bite with an antiseptic and clean the affected area.
