And unfortunately, some cities have reported higher levels of bugs than others.

        Tips to combat ticks:

        • Keep grass no more than three inches high and make sure to trim shrubs and other decaying vegetation to minimize space for ticks to hide in.
        • Place your outdoor play equipment in sunlight and away from trees when possible.
        • Use a DEET-based insect repellant. Make sure to spritz on your wrists, ankles, and neck.
        • Get your dog a flea and tick collar.

          Tip to combat mosquitos:

          • Remove or simply replace water that may accumulate in things like buckets and birdbaths. Mosquitos often lay eggs in these locations.
          • Make sure your lawn is free from piles of branches, twigs, or leaves. Mosquitos like to hide in these places.
          • Try planting mosquito-repelling herbs in your garden, such as citronella, basil, or lavender.
