A hot, cheerful, happy summer is darkened for children, and even for adults with a huge number of insects that fly around, buzz, climb into the eyes, mouth, nose. At the same time, they still bite painfully, and the bites itch terribly, swell and hurt.
An insect bite, such as a wasp, bee and others, can cause a severe allergic reaction or even death. A tick bite can lead to diseases such as Lyme disease, tick-borne encephalitis and others.
To prevent bites, it is important to follow certain rules.
Closed clothing. When you plan to go out into nature with a child, first of all, you need to choose the appropriate clothes for him. Better to buy a special protective suit. The problem is that such suits are not sold everywhere and are not cheap. If there is no special suit, you need to choose trousers and a jacket with a hood with elastic bands at the bottom of the jacket itself, trousers and sleeves.
The thickness of the fabric will depend on the weather conditions. For hot summer, light cotton or linen fabrics are suitable, for cool weather in summer, as well as for spring and autumn, denser fabrics, better natural ones, so that the child is comfortable. Be sure to wear socks and a hat.
Footwear. For dry summers, you need to take high-top sneakers, for wet, cool weather - high boots or rubber boots.
Repellents. The use of repellents is mandatory. You need to choose depending on the need and in accordance with the age of the child. Some means are used to process clothes, others to apply to the skin, and still others to repel insects at the picnic site.
On the eve of going out into nature, process clothes and shoes. Immediately before going out, apply the product to the skin. And to scare away insects at the picnic site, take devices with you: spirals, candles or an ultrasonic repeller (such a device is completely safe for children).
Inspection. It is necessary to periodically carefully examine the child's clothes, his hair for the presence of ticks. Also, after coming home, you need to carefully examine the scalp and the whole body.
If you properly prepare for outdoor recreation, then insects will not be able to darken it.
