Summer is a season known for outdoor activities; from picnics, camping, swimming and bike rides, to bug bites.

It's not uncommon, especially after a day out in the sun, to find a bite or two. And no surprise, the main culprit often turns out to be the mosquito. Mosquitos can be nasty pests that carry some not-so-fun diseases, like West Nile Virus.
