Go to a Hot Country and Return Without Mosquito Borne Disease

By: Devinder Patel
Before you reserve your airport taxi to take you and your Loved Ones to fly away to the Tropics, please remember that it is your duty to protect your family from Mosquitoes biting them, as they may then quickly succumb to the numerous diseases that are spread by Mosquitoes.

Too much to ask you might think ?

By planning your trip well and taking our advice, which was obtained through personal experience very recently you can avoid being bitten.

These are important words, and we hope you will heed our kind advice, as any reduction in suffering is clearly desirable, especially for the Young Uns. They need to be protected jealously from the myriad of Mosquito borne sicknesses.

Mosquitoes carry various types of bacteria, viruses, and parasites, and the worst of these is Malaria, Yellow Fever, Encephalitis, Nile Fever and Dengue Fever.

INTERESTING FACT: Did you know that the Mighty Mosquito kills more human beings every year, than any other living organism !

Mosquito carried illnesses kill millions of young children every year, because children's immune systems are not fully developed and cannot cope with the fatal onslaught.

Mosqutoes are waiting in their strongholds for You and other travellers, as they have done for millennia, and they are built to perfection, to assist them in their Blood thirsty search.

How do "Mozzies" locate you ?

Mosquitoes sense the Carbon Dioxide in your breath and home in on your vapour trail coming out from. YOU !

Mosquitos are short sighted and do not see very well. However they do have Night Vision and can see you in pitch black darkness, since they have infra-red capability and can see heat. In other words the invisible body heat that you radiate at all times is clearly visible to Mosquitoes by day or night.

Mosquitoes sense the lactic acid in your perspiration, and having found you, they then pierce your readily available skin with their highly infected dirty proboscis in order to siphon your blood.

During the Summer Heat in the daytime it is too hot for Mosquitoes to be flying around, so they find a cool place to relax in before hunting time at dusk in the evening, when the sun goes down.

However if you are nearby and rouse them, they will drink your blood, as you have provided them with a perfect Dinner Invitation to feed on you.

All Mosquitoes feed on flower nectar to survive, however the female Mosquito needs the iron and protein etc. in your blood to make eggs, and thus most species are able to suck blood which is called Haematophagy (enter stage right Count Dracula).

The biggest species of Mosquito does not drink blood, it's larvae eat the larvae of other Mosquitoes ! This why this large type of Mosquito Eater was bred on occasions for Pest control purposes with little result due to the vast stagnant areas that are available for breeding.

Well - how can you go on Holiday to a much desired exotic location, and guarantee to survive healthy and well and also live to tell the tale ?
