Mosquito Bite Avoidance follow C.L.O.A.K
Travellers are advised to purchase insect repellents in advance of travel as many countries won't sell effective ones. This is especially important if you are pregnant or planning pregnancy.
Strict Bite avoidance measures are recommended for all travellers. Aedes mosquitoes carrying dengue, Zika, etc are particularly persistent and aggressive biters from dawn until dusk whilst the malaria-carrying anopheles species are active at night.
Especially if you are susceptible to insect bites follow C.L.O.A.K.
Other tips include: Spray clothes. Reapply insect repellent after washing hands or any other parts of the body. Stay inside, under a mosquito net if you have one, during dawn & dusk. Always sleep under a mosquito net as NO insect repellent will work all night long.
C – Cover up skin as much as possible with suitable clothing, especially arms and legs. You can also soak clothes with 10-20 drops of Java citronella (not the cheaper & less effective C. nardus) diluted in water & leave for 15 minutes or more.
L – Light coloured Loose clothing is advisable to wear as mosquitoes are attracted to dark colours.
O – Odours, both bodily & otherwise e.g. perfumes & nearly all scented toiletries attract insects to you. Therefore, it is key to wash thoroughly morning and evening with our citrus-aromatic HAIR & BODYWASH. Use a loofah every other day to remove dirt from skin pores if you are very attractive to insects e.g. get bitten in the UK: unlike synthetic mittens and other man-made exfoliators, only a natural loofah has microscopic hairs to remove the detritus.
The department of disease control at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the NHS recommends ONLY 2 actives to be used in high risk areas where mosquito-borne illnesses could be present: DEET & PMD The latter is used in all our biocidal repellents & the former should not be used for children as it is a neurotoxin!
