PRO­TECT YOUR­SELF

The best way to pro­tect your­self is to cover up when you’re out­doors but for ex­tra pro­tec­tion: » Stay in­doors in the early morn­ing or at dusk » Use an ef­fec­tive in­sect re­pel­lent » Don’t use per­fumes or scented body creams and deodor­ants » Stick to white cloth­ing or muted shades like tan or green, which don’t at­tract or alarm bees » Al­ways check your drinks be­fore you take a sip and keep them cov­ered when out­side.
