When are mosquitoes most active?

Using “Bug Lights”

Useful tips to prevent mosquito bites:

• If possible, schedule your activities to avoid the times when mosquitoes are most active (around dawn and dusk)
• Dress in light, loose-fitting clothing
• Place a large fan on your deck to hinder mosquito mobility (mosquitoes are weak fliers)
• Light decks using General Electric yellow "Bug Lights" (these lights are not mosquito barriers per se, but do not attract mosquitoes as much as other incandescent lights)
