What DOES help to repel mosquitoes?
With the arrival of warm weather, we open doors and windows. For many, the annual fight against mosquitoes starts there. Will it be a summer-long swat fest, or is there an easier way?
Protection against ticks
Usually, you won’t discover a tick until it has attached itself to your skin and gorged itself on blood. Check yourself after being in grass, shrubs or heathlands. Even better: protect yourself against ticks!
Walking is a healthy form of exercise. It improves your fitness and causes few injuries. Nevertheless, even the most experienced walker cannot prevent blisters. That is why blisters are the number one foot problem among walkers.
A new malaria mosquito has been discovered in Africa. Now, the Asian malaria vector mosquito Anopheles stephensi has set foot on African soil in the Horn of Africa, imported quite recently from Asia. Malaria is still one of the deadliest diseases in the world, with more than 228 million victims per year, mostly children under the age of 5.
In 2020, the news was largely dominated by the COVID-19 virus. However, still little attention is being paid to malaria, while mortality rates are rising substantially. The mosquito is the deadliest animal on earth and therefore prevention against the malaria mosquito and against malaria is of great importance!
