Having an effective mosquito repellent is becoming increasingly important especially for those who travel abroad. Mosquito borne diseases are on the increase. An effective insect repellent will help protect you from mosquito bites, which can be life threatening. Mosquito bites can spread diseases such as malaria, chikungunya, dengue, west Nile virus and yellow fever. There are as well, sand flies, deer flies and black flies to contend with, all of which bite.

Apart from Antarctica, you will find them in every continent in the world. They are most prevalent wherever there is stagnant water such as swamps marshes and ponds.

Previously serious diseases transmitted by mosquitos were associated with African and south American countries, however with temperatures throughout the world rising, the risk is not limited to these countries. West Nile virus which first emerged in Uganda on 1937, it is now being seen in European countries. Spain has seen a number of cases and several deaths.

According to the World Health Organisation mosquitos are one of the deadliest animals in the world, they are responsible for millions of deaths a year. Dengue has been one of the fastest rising diseases.

There are now cases caused by what is called "luggage transmission". According to Doctor Cameron Webb an Entomologist based in Sydney Australia, where there are cases of these diseases being found amongst people who have not travelled to the infected regions. The most probable explanation is "luggage transmission". Spraying the inside of a suitcase with an insect repellent can avoid this risk.

There is not just one type of mosquito for each disease; some mosquitos carry various diseases. The Aedes aegypti mosquito can transmit dengue, yellow fever, and chikungunya.

Symptoms of these diseases are flu like and can occur up to ten days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. A high fever is common as is a severe headache joint and muscle pain, swollen glands nausea and vomiting. This can be dangerous to those who already have weakened immune systems.
