3. Bug spray
Mosquitoes don’t announce their presence until it’s too late, and some can carry dangerous viruses such as West Nile fever. So, be prepared before they land by applying mosquito repellant to exposed skin.
Just make sure the spray you store in your car is not in an aerosol can. As we report in “9 Things You Should Never Leave in Your Car“:
“Aerosol cans, such as those containing spray paint, sunblock or deodorant, shouldn’t be kept in your car since they are sensitive to heat. Pressurized cans may expand, possibly causing them to explode.”
