A tick and mosquito repellent for hiking!
In order to decide whether to take mosquito repeller, you need to know the peculiarities of the route and the region where you are going hiking.
The biggest danger is posed by insects that carry viruses. ☠️
Most countries in Africa, parts of Asia and South America are at risk of contracting malaria, dengue fever or Zika virus. Therefore, before traveling to such countries or regions, travelers should consult the institutions or sites that provide recommendations to travelers for information on the necessary preventive measures.
Ticks that carry the encephalitis virus are found in forest areas throughout America, northern China and in European countries (Baltic States, Scandinavia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, France).
But, even if you go on a hike where mosquitoes and ticks are not infected, you should protect yourself from the discomfort of multiple bites, the risk of infection when brushing them and from sleepless nights. That's why mosquito repeller is definitely a useful tool for hiking!
There are no mosquitoes in the highlands (windy and cold), but ticks, alas, are present in the lowlands and in the highlands. But, often the beginning of the route goes through the forest area, and here protection from mosquitoes, ticks and midges is necessary.
Means of protection and prevention from mosquitoes:
✅ Closed feet and legs (boots + long socks + long pants). Some tourists recommend tucking the pants into the socks to block all the approaches, but this is not always convenient.
✅ A light jacket or shirt with sleeves on the cuffs is better in light tones, so it is easier to notice a tick or mosquito.
✅ There is a baseball cap, hood or bandage on the head, and the hood is good in that it protects the neck as well. However, there are also hats with neck protection.
✅ Examine yourself and your comrades several times during the day. And in the evening, when you can undress, conduct a more detailed examination, remembering to shake off your clothes.
✅ You can not leave food and its residues open, wash near the camp, they will attract many different insects.
✅ Folk remedies: Unfortunately, as practice shows, most folk remedies are ineffective. Clove oil scares away mosquitoes, lavender and citronella oil, and lavender oil scares away mites.
✅ Chemical repellents: out of competition with other methods of protection. Even in a day trip through America, it is better not to take risks and buy mosquito repeller, paying attention to the composition and concentration of the active substance.
