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!
During the past days, some interesting news came out of the United Kingdom. In Great Britain, an insect repellent containing the active ingredient Citriodiol® is used by the military as added protection against the Coronavirus / Covid-19 virus. Huh? What? Very interesting news indeed.
Did you know that malaria is still the largest 'killer' infectious disease in the world? And that this is due to the deadliest animal in the world: the mosquito? With more than 405,000 deaths annually (unfortunately mainly children under 5 and unfortunately this number is on the increase again) and more than 200,000,000 (that is 200 million reported) infections per year.
During this period, it is important to wash / clean your hands regularly even when your hands are not visibly dirty, it is important to regularly wash your hands with soap and water or use a cleansing hand gel.
