Protecting Your Family From Bug Bites
Dr. Nancy Grauso-Eby, Pediatrician, Deaconess Clinic West
Summer time means being outside. And sometimes, that means that insects think that we’re delicious, and begin to bite.
Fortunately, most bites by mosquitos, flies, fleas and even ticks do NOT cause disease. That being said, the best thing to do for your kids and yourself is to try to prevent the bite in the first place.
