Keeping you and your kids itch-free by applying bug repellant can also keep away nasty mosquito-borne diseases, such as Zika and West Nile.

Here’s how to apply bug spray properly, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says:

  • Follow the product label’s instructions carefully.
  • Do not apply bug spray to the eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Put repellant on your own hands, then apply to a child’s face and neck.
  • Don’t use bug spray on an open wound or irritated skin.
  • Don’t use bug spray on babies who are less than 2 months old.
