Insect Protection

Insect Protection

  • Insect repellents can be divided into three main categories: natural, DEET, and alternatives to DEET. They can be applied to the skin in several formulations, or freestanding methods can be used.

  • There are various ways to protect against biting insects - some Insect Repellent Clothing is impregnated with insecticide during the manufacturing process whilst others are woven a certain way that stops insects from biting through the fabric. Providing both chemical and chemical-free options for all travellers.

  • A great range of products for dealing with the aftermath of any beasties that make it through your defences. It's good to be prepared, particularly where children are concerned or if you have sensitive skin that reacts to bites.

  • Mosquito nets provide essential protection from insect borne diseases, and will help make sure you get a peaceful night's sleep. It's important to know what you're buying, as they're available in many different shapes and sizes.

  • Combined with repellent these can be a life saver in high risk areas where you need to do everything you can to avoid being bitten - and could save your sanity if you're under attack from a swarm of midges!

  • Permethrin is an insecticide and it's often recommended for use in areas where malaria is a problem. It can be used to treat clothing, tents, mosquito nets and footwear.

  • Mosquitoes can be deadly and should always be taken seriously, but for abject, on the spot misery you have to go a long way to beat a cloud of Scottish Midges on the warpath and out for blood.

  • Ticks are spider-like insects that bite and attach themselves to their host (ie you!) and then start feeding. They can carry Lyme's disease too - so don't forget to protect yourself.

  • Spiders very rarely come looking for you and generally they will do their best to keep out of your way, but they can be a problem if they do decide they want to share your living quarters!

  • Perhaps they're misunderstood and they're just trying to be friendly - or perhaps they really are just horrible blood-sucking monsters. Either way, they're best avoided...

  • Bed Bugs - the name says it all really - nasty little critters who hide in beds waiting to pounce - and they're becoming increasingly common. Fleas can be a problem too, so it's well worth taking a few precautions.

  • Jellyfish Lotion will help to take the sting out of any chance encounter... and if you do ever find yourself lost at sea you might happily give your right arm for a reliable shark repellent!

  • Citronella and Lavendin have been used in candles, incense and mosquito coils for many years, and whilst they should never be relied upon in high risk areas they can often be an advantage both inside and out.

  • Often the need for insect repellent extends indoors as well - plug-in devices are compact and easy to use, and insect killing sprays and smoke bombs can also be very effective.

  • A great range of portable zapper units for use inside and out when pests threaten to ruin your day.
