Wherever you are travelling to in the world, you will be at risk from biting insects, or even mosquitoes. Therefore it is important to know the risks before you go and ensure you are taking the correct repellents. Jungle Formula repellents are the only repellents with specific formulas that provide protection depending on your risk factor. Jungle Formula repellents provide low risk protection, medium protection and high risk protection, ideal when travelling to counties that have a high risk of mosquito bites.
Mosquitoes are known for passing on the malaria disease, which is a parasitic infection of the blood. There are different strains, some of which can be fatal and they provide symptoms similar to flu, such as headaches, fever, vomiting and aching muscles & joints, so can be easy to miss, however malaria is preventable if the proper precautions are taken. Other biting insects can cause itching, soreness and irritation when travelling, which can be an annoyance.
