Here Are Ways You Can Protect Yourself From Mosquitos in Bahrain

Bahrain’s beautiful climate can sometimes attract unwanted guests – mosquitoes. These pesky insects not only leave itchy bites but can also transmit diseases. The good news is, with a few preventative measures, you can significantly reduce your chances of getting bitten.

Here are some key tips to keep those pesky mosquitos at bay:

  • Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Grounds:
    • Empty and clean any containers that hold stagnant water, such as flower pots, birdbaths, and old tires.
    • Ensure proper drainage for roofs and gutters to prevent puddles from forming.
    • Cover water storage tanks securely.
  • Dress for Defense:
    • Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, particularly during peak mosquito hours (dawn and dusk).
    • Consider treating clothing with permethrin, a safe and effective insect repellent for fabrics.
  • Create a Mosquito-Free Zone:
    • Install screens on doors and windows to keep them out of your living space.
    • Use mosquito nets when sleeping outdoors.
    • Hang curtains over doorways and windows to create an additional barrier.
  • Repel the Attack:
    • Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus to exposed skin.
    • Always follow the instructions on the label carefully, paying close attention to application frequency and areas to avoid (like eyes and mouth).

By following these simple steps, you can create a mosquito-free haven and enjoy the outdoors comfortably. Remember, a little prevention goes a long way in keeping those pesky bites at bay!
