100% DEET for topical application to your skin; Permethrin for clothing. Outstanding results, world-wide, in my experience.
Lets go camping together. :camping: Im more of a bottle of Jack. Tasty and gets the job done.. for the mosquitoes.. unless their's tastier blood around.I spent 3 months driving from Las Vegas, through Canada, to Alaska. Skagway,ferry ride, Haynes, tok, Valdez, Anchorage, Kenai, anchorage, Denali, Fairbanks, back to Tok, Chicken and back into Canada. I am one that mosquitoes LOVE. I am the Dom Perignon for the Culicidae family. Except under extreme infestation my wife had nothing to worry about. I got the hits. I carried OFF! 25% for light days. Repel 40% Deet spray for medium and Repel pen w/100% deet which I carried in my chest pocket all the time for heavy. I lost the pen and began a panic attack! With my arsenal I did ok keeping bloodshed to a minimum and will go back to AK well supplied with the same.
Here's an interesting article I just read this morning: http://health.yahoo.net/experts/dayinhealth/why-are-some-people-mosquito-magnets . It mentions the socks thing and some other reasons.Washing your feet and stinky socks will keep skeeters with malaria away.
The symptoms they listed didn't make it sound like a party I wanted to go to!I have had Dengue before on Utila when I lived there they called it the BONE SHAKES
tell ya its a interesting feeling for sure
kinda like those sore throats you get and you cant swallow and when you do its painful now imagine that on every single thing in your body including your eyes and ears and well everything
Maui had a big outbreak of Dengue some time ago also ! and quite a few people got it pretty bad ! also Maui has had some bad run ins with that flesh eating disease AHHH paradise but it was a mild strain lucky enough
