Description:Caption:
This image depicts a young woman standing outdoors, and tying her shoe laces. Zika is spread primarily by the bite of Aedes species mosquitoes (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). The best way to prevent diseases spread by mosquitoes is to protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites. Here, the woman is wearing long sleeves and long pants to prevent mosquito bites.
Additional Information:
“CDC recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents with one of these active ingredients: DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol, or 2-undecanone. When using repellent, apply to your hands first and then apply to your face. Always follow the product label instructions and reapply as directed.”
