Living in Florida mosquitoes get really bad at this time of the year.  Now that it’s hurricane season it rains just about everyday. Rain means standing water for female mosquitoes to have a place to lay their eggs.

So what is the solution to these pesky insects? 


Avoid standing water.  Mosquitoes are often attracted to water, especially standing water, so lakes, stagnant creeks, bogs, marshes, and swamps are mosquito havens, especially during hot months like summer. Many species of mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water so if possible stay away from any bodies of stagnant water, whether they’re small puddles or vast swamps, to reduce your risk.


Avoid getting too hot. Mosquitoes are thought to be attracted to warm bodies, if possible stay cool and wear dark-colored fabrics that absorb more heat from the sun rather than light-colored alternatives.  Exercising is great put maybe move it indoors during the the warm months because your body tends to radiate heat and will also cause you to breathe heavily. Carbon dioxide, one of the gasses you exhale, can be smelled by mosquitoes even at relatively long distances.

Keep grass cut, bushes trimmed, removing piles of lawn cuttings or debris. Mosquitoes like moist, cool areas and will hide in tall grass or bushes during the heat of the day. Feeding on plant nectar when they aren’t feeding on us!  Moist piles of lawn cuttings or sticks are great breeding grounds for mosquitoes.


Use a mosquito / insect repellent.  Cutter  has a full line of products from sprays to outside solutions.  I use the personal products for my family; Cutter Skinsations Spray, Cutter Dry and Cutter All Family Mosquito Wipes.  All three of these products are perfect to toss in my purse, diaper bag, beach bag or even leave in the car for when we are outside.

Cutter Skinsations is a spray that has a nice crisp clean scent that will not leave your skin smelling like bug spray. Not only will you not smell like bug spray but it will leave your skin moisturized with the aloe and vitamin E without the greasiness!


Cutter All Family Mosquito Wipes are the perfect solution for no sprays. They are convenient for on the go. I especially like it on my kids faces and hard to reach areas that mosquitoes can get to!  


 Cutter Dry Insect Repellent is a non-scented spray that dries nice and fast without the greasy and oil film on your skin. I especially like that the top slides into a lock and open position which is a great safety feature when you have little kids. 




My kids are very energetic and do not like to be cooped up indoors so once the rain stops they want to be out on the swing set, climbing our backyard tree, skateboarding, riding bikes or doing a nature walk. So to prevent them from getting all bitten up by mosquitoes and other insect pests our solution are Cutter products. 




I do not know anyone who likes to get bit by bugs but the more concerning part is the Nile Virus and other mosquito carrying diseases.  How does your family protect themselves from mosquito bites this summer?

  1. We live in a very wooded area and mosquitoes are a big problem for us. We need a good repellent!!

  2. We live in the woods pretty much and are outdoors most of the day and evening so we go through bug repellent like crazy. My kids seem to be magnets for black flies and mosquitoes – especially my younger two, just like my husband- so I try to be hypervigilant.

  3. We’re lucky we don’t have too many mosquitos in Southern California. I do like the idea of the wipes – much easier than sprays.

  4. We are lucky to not have many mosquitoes in our area. But when we go up north we have to use a ton of protection. Do you know if Cutter offers a natural line?

  5. These are great tips–my daughter suffers so much from these pesky bug bites–ugggghh!! Drives her crazy and me too–going to try this out-thanks for sharing

  6. Mosquitoes love me. I hate them. So I totally stock up on Cutters, especially this time of year. Living by the lake in Florida is a total breeding ground for these bloodsuckers, and Cutter really works in keeping them off me.

    • The mosquitoes up north are as bad as down there, and I know because I’ve lived in both places. Silly annoying bugs. πŸ˜‰

  7. We use Cutter in our yard. Our home gets infested w/mosquitoes at the beginning of summer, and one treatment in the yard keeps them gone all year.

  8. Great tips. And I really need to get some of those Cutter products!

  9. My son gets major welts if a mosquito bites him. Thanks for sharing Cutter. I need to try it.

  10. Mosquitos, bane of my existence. My kids have bites all over them right now and those striped ones like in the photo above are the WORST blood suckers! Need to try this product.

  11. Thank you for these tips! I really want to try the wipes with my youngest. It seems like mosquitos just flock to him! And I’m saving this tips for our trip later this summer!

    We live right next to a huge wooded area that has a river running right through it so the mosquitoes here are horrible! Cutter has always been my go-to brand for repelling them, it works great!

  13. Thankfully, mosquitoes aren’t as big of a problem where I am. But I haaaate bugs & am thrilled that Cutters can keep them at bay.

  14. Mosquitoes are horrible! They are insidious bloodsucking beasts! A lot of people think mosquitoes only hang out in high weeds, but that’s not true. If your grass gets too high, it will be a breeding ground! Keep that grass mowed, don’t have standing water around your home, and use Cutter when you go outside. It’s the best.

  15. We love our cutter products! <3 We live on a wooded lake and its mosquito paradise!

  16. I am a mosquito magnet and it drives me insane! My husband never gets bitten ever, and he doesn’t get why I complain about going outside at night etc. I am going to stock up on this stuff and make use of it!

  17. We should own stock in this.. the mosquitoes want to move in with our family.

  18. Mosquitoes love me. A great list to try to avoid them… thanks!

  19. I want to try the wipes. It is the only product I haven’t tried yet to get those pesky things to leave me alone.

    • I need to try the wipes too. We’ve gone so far as trying a smartphone app that says it will keep mosquitos away… as you can imagine, it doesn’t work! πŸ˜‰

  20. I can’t even go in my own back yard without spraying myself down. Seems like they just love me. HA! We love the sprays, super-easy to use and they really work

  21. Yikes I hate mosquitoes and they dislike me I swell get a sore and scar. It’s awful and I stay in πŸ™ Thank you for the information. Much appreciated.

  22. We use all of the Cutter products!! They are great for the kids…especially the wipes!

  23. Perfect timing to read this post! I just found a mosquito bite on my son this morning. It freaked me out since west nile has been in the news here.

  24. My husband gets bitten more than I do. I read once that if you drink beer mosquitoes are more attracted to you. That would apply for his case. I like the tips you have here, esp the one about keeping grass and bushes trimmed and cleaned up. I need to keep on the outside maintenance a bit more.

  25. Love these recommendations!!!

  26. That’s so interesting about warm bodies! I always spray like crazy in wooden or marshy areas.

  27. Great tips! They’ve been eating us up this summer.

  28. Luckily mosquitoes don’t like me very much but that tip about the grass is spot on. When we let it go a bit long the swarms are unbearable.

  29. Cutters is a great product. Just got some the other day.

  30. Great tips. My daughter is allergic to mosquito bites so we do everything we can to protect ourselves.

  31. Eek! I hate mosquitos, and that first photo is freaking me out! I use Cutter because I like that it smells nice to me, but still keeps them away!

  32. bugs love me, i had to resort to spraying my entire yard just to enjoy the outdoors in the summer

  33. Thanks for sharing, wish I had this a few weeks ago, I got eaten up ..they love me for some reason πŸ™ have to try these wipes.. thanks for sharing

  34. Oh I need to try this, I seem to be a mosquitoes magnet!!! I would love to use something like this that actually smells nice!

  35. Oh, the bugs – esp mosquitoes – have been SO bad this year! I have bites all over my ankles and I get so angry when they bite my kids!

  36. Hate hate hate bugs and especially mosquitos. need to try cutter.

  37. The mosquitoes are horrible around here, even just in our backyard. They LOVE me and my kids and the bites always swell up huge. Bleh! I like those wipes, great for ears, neck, ankles etc.

  38. I hate mosquitos and the thought of them makes me want to scratch. I really like the idea of the wipes!

  39. Wow I’m so glad we don’t have to deal with them here. Growing up in the mountains we did and they were the worst, Cutter is what we always used.

  40. They tend to love me. I will be keeping your advice in mind.

  41. Those horrid things keep me inside sometimes for fear of being bit. I hate them! I didn’t realize Cutter had wipes now. I need to pick a pack of those up.

  42. Cutter’s is a must have at our house. This years mosquitos are huge!

  43. h great tips for sure! Those little buggers drive me nsane LOL

  44. I was thinking about getting some bats because we have so many mosquitos!

  45. Amber Louise Edwards says:

    Bugs just gross me out!! We use Cutter all the time!!

  46. Love your tips! I’m allergic to moskitoes!

  47. We just returned from the Dominican Republic which is HUGE on Mosquitoes! We were very well protected with Cutter repellent! Worked great!

  48. I don’t know what it is, but I’m always the one getting bit. I’ll keep a look out for the repellent wipes.

  49. I think that mosquitos are just naturally attracted to me! I swear, I can be outside for 2 seconds and already have like 5 bites. I love this type of repellent. It really does work.

  50. We use the Cutter with picaridin. It’s the only thing that works for us!

  51. We definitely need this! We live in FL on the water and bugs run rampant!

  52. The mosquitoes here are so bad this year! I don’t know that we’ve ever used so much repellant.

  53. Thanks for the tips! The mosquitos are BAD this year, especially since we continue to get rain every single day! These are great tips– but it’s hard to avoid water right now lol.

  54. Savanah Rae says:

    Thanks for the tips! I unfortunately get attacked by mosquitoes every time I step out the door. I’ll have to try these products.
