- RULES DO IN REMEMBER
- Repellents and repellents
The simplest and most effective rule is to use repellents, which are chemical substances that repel insects. Nonetheless, select those containing DEET. Optionally, the formula-spray, gel, or roll-on, it is equally necessary to know which concentration to choose from. In the case of DEET, children should not exceed 20 per cent and adults should not exceed 50%. This is therefore not an effective treatment for children under the age of 2 months. DEET agents should be used more frequently after a water bath, for example.
Watch out! Remember that the repellent is applied to the skin in tropical countries where you are using UV filters, after first protecting it with sunscreen.
- Max up the body
Most guides advise you to cover up from head to toe in the tropics, i.e. long trousers, long sleeves, socks and high boots. And if you look at a local, eg in Thailand, you’ll actually see that they wear long-sleeved jeans and blouses even in 30 degrees. In part, high temperatures, and in part, mosquito defense is a behavior. you aware, however, that if we don’t go to the jungle or safari just for a holiday trip to warm countries, everybody wants to take advantage of this heat and sun, and the last thing he dreams of is walking in jeans. I’ve got a patent for it that I wear long thin dresses or thin, loose pants, for example, which cover the skin but are still airy.
Watch out! When traveling more survival ouch it is worth considering purchasing clothing factory impregnated insecticide, such as permuting, means a measure that has a deterrent effect on various insect species including: chamomiles, ticks, gnats and sand fleas.
- Prepare your holiday
It is very important to check out the room before you fall asleep. First, take a look at the tightness of windows and doors, check if there are holes in the safety nets, and remove all mosquitoes from the room. We definitely recommend for you that you’re choose air-conditioned rooms, because this is a natural barrier that runs through insects. If you don’t have air conditioning, you need to choose a place with a mosquito net, but be careful-check that there are no holes, because the beds in many hostels or hotels leave a lot to desire.
- The time of day counts
It is not only at dawn and at dusk that the mosquito transmitting diseases are attacked. During the course of a circular day, various types of them bear different pathogens, so knowing that we are exposed all the time is a vital concept that can motivate us to continuously defend ourselves. We feed on mosquitoes throughout the day that bear dengue, chikungunya fever, zika and yellow fever. At night, however, the risk of a mosquito infesting malaria, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile fever is increased.
- Not Mosquitoes
Disprove the myth that we are threatened only by mosquitoes. There are many more insects carrying dangerous diseases and there is nothing to be panic about, but be aware that applying the above principles protects us against the whole spectrum of insects. There are also sand-worms in a tropical environment (extremely annoying micro-openings that are difficult to see and do not sound like a mosquito)-leishmaniasis carriers, onchocercosis flies, chrysops from which leas can grow and established tusks that carry an African coma. In a word-there’s nothing to guard against!
Exotic journeys also involve possible contact with unfamiliar animal species living near humans, Indonesian or Indian monkeys. Our first instinct is the will to look closely at them, take a photo, etc. You need to be cautious though, as they are all wild animals, also carriers of diseases like rabies. Bats are also bat carriers, in caves for instance. Moreover, the risk of being attacked by a dog or cat is much greater, and these are not missing, for instance in Thailand-there are entire crowds of them. It is worth getting vaccinated on rabies, and being restrained in contact with animals.
If you are traveling to open areas and close to nature, be sure to watch out for snakes, spiders and scorpions, animals which are virtually non-existent in Poland, so we are not used to taking them into consideration in our way of thinking.
- Human maker
A very important factor, often underestimated. It happens to get sick when traveling, and even go to the hospital. Besides solid and proven cover, which is an absolute justification, whether it’s a short trip to Europe or a trip to the tropics-in the case of medical services you do need to have eyes around the ear. The level of sterility and professionalism of staff in poorly developed countries that deviate from Western norms, which poses a tourist risk of contracting Hepatitis B or HIV / AIDS when taking IV drip or intravenous drugs. So if you have a choice (I am not talking about extreme life and death cases, Think about it five times if the place you came to meet the standards of cleanliness, when any help is already all).
This also applies to casual sexual encounters-always use condoms and be aware that the risk of contracting STDs and HIV / AIDS is far greater in developing countries than in Europe.
The same applies to the performance of cosmetic treatments or tattoos-if you need to, choose a reputable place because it will reduce the likelihood of contracting.
What’s really important at the end of the day is health and safety. Any trip without this loses its flavor.
