Did you know?  One of seventeen people currently alive will die as the result of a mosquito bite!

 

The best way to avoid insect bites -- and the diseases insects transmit -- is to apply a DEET repellent to your exposed skin and treat your clothing with permethrin. The effectiveness of this combination is confirmed by many studies.

Deet on the skin and Permethrin on the clothing.  The latest technology in insect repellents can give almost 100% protection against mosquito bites and West Nile Virus.

West Nile Virus - Focus On Prevention

Mosquitoes are nasty critters. Worldwide, one out of 17 people currently alive will die as the result of a mosquito bite. In the United States, West Nile is not the only mosquito transmitted disease. St. Louis encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, and deadly Eastern equine encephalitis which, though rare, has a mortality rate of 30-50%, can all be transmitted to humans. Mosquitoes also transmit over 1600 cases of Malaria annually in the United States.

While local and state governments take responsibility for mosquito habitat control, there is one method of personal protection which can offer almost 100% protection against mosquito bites while you move around outdoors. The insect repellents Deet and Permethrin, when used in combination, can be 99.99% effective against mosquito bites (and 100% against ticks).

  • Mosquito Magnets have limited ability to attract mosquitoes away from humans, are expensive and awkward to move around
  • Bug Zappers kill more beneficial bugs than dangerous female mosquitoes, and have been found to be virtually ineffective
  • Sonic devices plain and simply do not work
  • Incense and candles only work within a very limited distance, if at all
  • So called natural repellents only work for very short periods of time.

DEET has been around for fifty years and is still the most effective skin repellent against West Nile Virus mosquitoes. Originally developed for the military, PERMETHRIN is an insecticide and repellent which is applied to clothing and will kill mosquitoes on contact. Use of these two repellents together has been called a "miracle combination" at combatting mosquito bites.

Deet and Permethrin are available from BITEandSTINGS.com. We recommend Controlled Release 20% Deet Lotion or 100% Maxi-Deet for the skin, and spray or soak applied Permethrin for clothing and mosquito netting. Use insect repellents to PREVENT the mosquito bite, and protect yourself and your family from diseases such as West Nile Virus!
