How can I protect myself and daughter while gardening in the yard?

Besides insect repellent lotions or sprays. Is there anything further I should use to minimize insect bites? Mosquitoes are ramped in my area. And now that the weather is getting warmer, I’d like to some pruning and gardening. Is there anything additional I should do to protect myself and dear daughter?

    Other than repellents, you can tuck a fabric softener sheet in your clothes. The leaves of Beauty Bush repel ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. Keep the grass short and make sure there’s no standing water anywhere near. You can buy a product called Bug Free Backyard that works with a hose-end sprayer that will help a great deal for up to a month–my personal choice.

    Even if it’s a little warm, you would be more protected by wearing long-sleeve shirts and jeans instead of shorts. Also, to protect yourselves from the sun, wear gardening hats to shade your face and head. If you’re gardening, it’s always a good idea to wear gardening gloves. You might also want to not garden during the hottest part of the day, when mosquitoes are more lkely to bite.
