We all know mosquitoes carry deadly viruses for our horses. Summer, with its heat and humidity, is mosquito season, so to protect your equine friends, remember to keep the mosquito population down at your horse farm by removing areas with standing water, like unused water troughs and buckets. If you need to store these items outside, turn them upside down when not in use. Low areas in the fields which retain puddles can also be mosquito breeding grounds.
For your comfort, use bug repellent while you are outdoors. Repellents with DEET, Picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus are the best.
