Protect Against Insect Bites
Most insect bites in the Unites States come from yellow jackets, wasps, bees, and hornets, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. The best way to protect against insect bites is to avoid them in the first place. Keep away from areas that are known to be buggy and do not allow children to walk in the grass without shoes and socks on. Be sure to clean up food and drinks at picnic areas to avoid attracting bugs. Encourage children to dress in long pants and long-sleeved shirts when playing outside.
