We are in the middle of hurricane season and according to many, we are at the peak of the season right now. The Carolinas were recently hit by Florence and recovery efforts are ongoing. Unfortunately, it will likely take years for some areas to fully recover.

Besides the flooding and damage that occurred, folks will also have to contend with an increase of pests such as mosquitos.

Mosquito populations surge about 10 – 14 days after a large rain storm. That’s because mosquitos have an affinity for warm, standing water. Any place where water can collect offers a prime breeding ground and leads to a mosquito infestation. Preventing areas of stagnant water from collecting when possible is always best practice. Ultimately, heavy rains will increase the numbers of mosquitoes in an area so your best bet is to keep protection such as OFF!® Personal Repellent products on hand.

You’ll find a variety of OFF!® products available at your local Publix from personal repellents to area repellents that offer protection for larger outdoor spaces. Find exactly what you need and save on your next purchase with the printable coupon.

Why not try OFF! Botanicals® Personal Insect Repellent? It’s a plant-based mosquito repellent*, with an active ingredient chemically synthesized from pine oil extract. It provides effective protection from black flies, gnats, no-see-ums and mosquitoes, including those that may carry the West Nile virus. You’ll enjoy two hours of effective protection and it’s DEET-free.**

For larger areas, you can use an OFF!® Mosquito Lamp. The OFF!® Mosquito Lamp provides up to six hours of mosquito protection for any outdoor get together. It provides protection for outdoor gatherings by repelling mosquitoes up to 10 ft. x 10 ft. The heat from the candle activates repellent from within the diffuser, releasing mosquito protection. It’s an easy way to ensure that the uninvited pests don’t ruin your plans.

*Active ingredient chemically synthesized from pine oil extract  **For protection that lasts more than 2 hours, choose a DEET-based repellent.
