This is good advice but they left out one important point. I used to spray my family down all over before they went outside, focusing on the arms, legs and exposed skin. But one thing about these mosquitoes is that they are sneaky and they will worm their way under the clothing and into the private areas, so the only way to be safe is to have your family strip down and spray them from head to toe, even the nether regions. We used to do this outside in the old days but now we do it inside since everyone has to be butt naked in order to get sprayed properly. It's also a fallacy that the spray burns and stings the genitals - it does not. Hopefully this will serve as a wake-up call to everyone but the price for not being protected is much more than itching and a rash, it could actually paralyze you, kill you or worse.
