Dengue, Japanese encephalitis, yellow fever, malaria, rickettsiosis can be transmitted by the bite of an insect or the bite of a mite.
|Mosquitoes can be dangerous... Sometimes...|
certain protective measures must therefore be respected: long clothing, repellent products for use on the skin and on clothing, electric insecticide diffusers, window closures, etc.
We propose to speak here about repellents.Our advice: Take with you a repellent based on DEET (N, N-diethyl-mtoluamide):
King insect repellent gel, 20%;
Purchase in USA or England:
Insect Screen family (spray), 25%;
Moustidose repellent lotion infested areas (lotion) 30%; Moustifluid, high risk areas (spray), 30%; Prebutix repellent lotion area, tropical (lotion), 30%;
Ultrathon insect repellent (cream or spray), 34%; Bushman repellent (roll-on-gel, dry-gel or atomizer), 34%;
Insect Screen infested areas adults (spray), 50% Biovectrol Tropic 2, 50%.
Insecticidal biocidal products for the impregnation of permethrin-based clothing, fabrics or mosquito nets are effective. We recommend treating your clothes before departure.

NB: It is wrong to claim that local products bought in Thailand are more efficient. Only the active component and its concentration determines its effectiveness. In Thailand the products offered are based on DEET. Concentrations of 13% and 15% are equally effective at a lower concentration.
We do not recommend using:ultrasonic devices, homeopathy, electric racquets, ribbons, paper and sticky stickers without insecticide, vitamin B1;
mosquito repellent bracelets and ticks;
essential oils whose effectiveness is less than 20 minutes in general.
