Wear loose, long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors especially around dusk and dawn. The best ways to keep mosquitoes from biting you is to simply cover your skin. Wear your sleeves and pant legs as long as possible to cover as much skin as possible. Also keep your clothing as loose as possible. This serves two purposes: first, it’s much more comfortable in during the summer months, when mosquitoes are most active. Second, mosquitoes can sometimes bite through clothing that’s held tight against the skin, especially if the fabric is thin.
