-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
"SESAME STREET" AND "S-C JOHNSON" HAVE LAUNCHED A NEW PROGRAM TO EDUCATE FAMILIES ABOUT MOSQUITO-BITE PREVENTION:  "ONE, TWO, THREE--STAY AWAY, MOSQUITOES" FEATURES TIPS FROM MUPPET-CHARACTERS ON BOTH AVOIDING POTENTIALLY DISEASE-CARRYING MOSQUITOES, AND ERADICATING THEIR BREEDING-GROUNDS--AS WELL AS INFORMATION ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF WEARING PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND REPELLENT.  DOCTOR TOM MASCARI IS AN ENTOMOLOGIST AT "S-C JOHNSON"...

(MASCARI):
"IT'S THE HEIGHT OF MOSQUITO-SEASON.  AND, THERE ARE THREE TIPS THAT FAMILIES CAN USE, TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AGAINST MOSQUITO-BITES.  THE FIRST ONE IS TO USE A REPELLENT CONTAINING THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT 'DEET'; IT'S AN IMPORTANT THING.  YOU SHOULD ALSO WEAR CLOTHING WITH LIGHTER COLORS, TO KEEP MOSQUITOES AWAY--AND ALSO MAKE SURE YOU'RE WEARING LONG-SLEEVE SHIRTS AND LONG PANTS, JUST TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST MOSQUITOES.  AND LASTLY, LOOK IN YOUR BACKYARD:  IF YOU HAVE ANY BUCKETS OR TOYS THAT CONTAIN WATER, JUST DUMP THE WATER OUT--TO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE MOSQUITOES BREEDING THERE."

(CLOSE):
THE FULL MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE, AT "SESAME-STREET"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"MOSQUITO".
