June, July, and August are the peak months for mosquitos giving you grief in the Lone Star State.

How To Fight Mosquitos In Texas This Summer

The CDC has some excellent suggestions when it comes to ways you fight back against mosquitos this summer. Some of the ways they recommend are:

  • Once a week empty anything that can collect standing water, scrub it, cover it, turn it over, or throw it away. Mosquitos lay eggs around water.
  • Use insect repellent.
  • Wear clothing that covers arms and legs. Cover your skin and the mosquitos can't bite it.
  • Use screens on windows and doors. It will help keep the mosquitos out.
