Avoiding Insect Bites
Malaria isn't the only disease that is transmitted through mosquito bites. In many tropical countries, they may also carry dengue, chikungunya, West Nile, Malaria, Yellow Fever or Zika.
Our tips for avoiding mosquito bites:
- Cover up, wear long sleeves/trousers when possible
- Use a repellant (we recommend Moskito Guard).
- Use mosquito nets where possible.
