The CDC has issued a series of guidelines for preventing mosquito bites in adults, children, and babies.
The agency recommends using an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellent, which is proven safe and effective, even for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
EPA-registered insect repellent with 1 of the 5 following active ingredients—DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol, and 2-undecanone—provides longer protection than repellents without 1 of these ingredients.
