Mosquito Matters

Mosquitoes, like many insects of their nature, are active around dusk. In the early evening, you are more prone to a mosquito bite. Mosquitoes are also most active before sunrise, so you may be prone to bites from these critters.

If you want to avoid mozzies, then  you will need to make sure that you have a form of superior mosquito defense within your home. This may mean shutting windows and having nets put around your home. Of course, you could avoid going out during these times. However, this would lead to a restrictive lifestyle that is not feasible for many who work long hours.
