Ways To Avoid Mosquito Bites While Travelling

Traveling is fun till the point you don’t come across the problem of mosquito bites. Did you know mosquitoes can suck upto 3 times more blood from your body than their body weight allows? Mosquitoes are carriers of deadly viruses that may cause diseases like malaria, chikungunya, dengue, Japanese encephalitis and Zika among others. And you don’t want to come back with any of those diseases as a souvenir from your holiday, right?

Ways To Avoid Mosquito Bites While Travelling

 

So, follow the advises given below as they would help you stay protected against mosquito bite no matter which hotel, home-stay, camp or jungle lodge you plan to spend your holiday in.

  1. Wear mosquito repellents:

    It is the best way to prevent mosquito bite and stay out of the reach of mosquitoes. Wearing a good quality and natural mosquito repellent like Odomos will provide 99.9% protection against mosquito bite, have no side effect on your skin and make its effect stay on you for more than 10 hours. And because it is made with natural ingredients, it is safe for use on children, gets easily absorbed by the skin and smells great too. It is easy to carry in your travel kit as it is available in spray, gel and wrist band formats.

  2. Dress to repel mosquitoes:

    Step out wearing light coloured clothes as mosquitoes easily get attracted to dark colours. Also, for extra protective measures, cover yourself up in full sleeves shirts, t-shirts & trousers as mosquitoes find it hard to bite through fabric.

  3. Shower frequently:

    To stay out of the reach of the mosquitoes, you’ve got to do this! Mosquitoes easily get attracted to the smell of sweat and if you are holidaying in a humid or hot area, chances are, the mosquitoes are most probably going to smell you from a mile. To avoid mosquitoes coming your way, try and bathe as much as you can. Take a dip in the pool or any water body in the surrounding area to get rid of the sweat and wipe your body clean with a towel or cloth before stepping out again.

  4. Avoid going near water bodies:

    Damp, cool and dark spaces are a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are known to be present around still or stagnant water bodies. So, if you can avoid going near such places while traveling, it would help you stay protected against an eventual mosquito bite. But if in case there is no way you can avoid it then:

    1. cover yourself up in light coloured clothes
    2. apply a mosquito repellent gel all over your body
    3. carry a mosquito net with you if you are planning to camp outside or near any of the sites like a lake, river or any other water body
