There are also bugs to contend with, and one of them flies above all the rest when it comes to summertime pests: the mosquito.
Thanks to Zika and West Nile virus, mosquitos are more than just an annoyance; they can actually be deadly. In fact, in terms of their death toll, mosquitos are the most dangerous creature on Earth, responsible for 725,000 human fatalities every year. Fortunately, it's easy to keep mosquitos away once you're armed with a little knowledge. Start by implementing these 20 genius tricks to avoid getting bitten by mosquitos and you'll be enjoying a bug-free summer before you know it.
