Getting Bugged By Bugs? 3 Things You Need to Know About Summer Insects!

With the joys of summer comes the annoyance of bugs. From mosquitoes to biting flies and from ticks to hornets, it’s easy for parents and kids alike to be “bugged” by insects while trying to enjoy summer activities. Here are three things about insects that you need to know!

  • Though all are a nuisance, biting bugs, such as mosquitoes and ticks, are more likely to carry diseases, because they carry infected blood of other organisms.
  • Though stinging insects are less likely to carry diseases, their venom can cause severe symptoms.
  • The majority of bug bite reactions are mild and don’t need treatment, but always consult your doctor if you have a concern.
