According to Emergencycareforyou, "While it's nearly impossible to prevent all insect bites and stings, these are steps you can take to minimize the risks:



  • "Use insect repellent. Don’t use scented soaps, perfumes, hair sprays, or sunscreens, which can attract bugs.

  • Avoid going outdoors during peak hours when insects are out - dusk and dawn.

  • Avoid areas where insects nest or gather, such as stagnant pools of water, garbage cans, and orchards and gardens where flowers are in bloom.

  • Don't leave food, drinks, or garbage out and uncovered."
