This is mosquito season!  These little flying pests are irritating and can pass along the West Nile virus.  Make sure to use insect repellent when you are outside.  Be cautious not to use products with DEET in babies under 2 months old and on older kids don’t use products with more that 30% DEET.  Mosquitoes are out in full force in early morning and in evening.  Keep insect repellent away from children’s eyes, hands and mouth.  Make sure to wash off any skin that has repellent on it once inside.  Loveland Family Medicine can answer any other questions you may have.
