Scientists have predicted that it will be a very bad mosquito season.

While there are various sprays and creams to keep insects away, another method is the color of the clothes you wear.

Researchers from the University of Washington have found that mosquitoes are attracted to red, orange, black and the color between blue and green, DailyMail wrote. 

Mosquitoes were found to ignore green, pink, blue and white, suggesting these are the best to wear outside in the summer.

Mosquito season starts in March and continues until autumn.
