Insect Repellents

If you are looking for mosquito repellents that stay on the skin for a long time, then you should buy products that contain DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or lemon eucalyptus oil and things like para-menthane-diol. All these things together will keep mosquitoes and insects away from you! So whenever you go for a trip, keep insect cream in your bag.

Take full care of your safety, and keep yourself covered. Cover yourself as much as possible. Whenever the weather is rainy, wear full-sleeved shirts and full-length pants. To avoid insects, spray permethrin on your clothes or directly buy clothes that have already been treated with permethrin. At the same time, keep in mind that the mosquito that spreads Zika, known as the Aedes aegypti mosquito, does not bite only at night, it can also bite you during the day, especially early in the morning and in the evening.
