Living in Florida, mosquitoes are seemingly part of our everyday life. However, many children don’t know mosquitoes not only make them itch, but can carry diseases like Zika and West Nile virus. To help prevent infection and to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne diseases, it is important for kids and parents to practice basic mosquito bite prevention: cover skin with long clothing and repellent and spill sources of standing water. Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one teaspoon or a bottle cap of water.
