#1. Wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and socks. Repellents used on skin can also be applied to clothing. But must be reapplied after laundering. 
#2. Apply lotion, liquid, or spray repellant to exposed skin. Ensure adequate protection during times of day when mosquitoes are most active. Dengue, yellow fever, West Nile, and chikungunya vector mosquitoes bite mainly from dawn to dusk. Malaria and Japanese encephalitis vector mosquitoes bite mainly from dusk to dawn. 
#3. Use common sense. Keep windows closed and use a mosquito net when necessary!
