Declare War on Mosquitos with Lifesystems Repellents and Nets

They are the bane of explorers, adventurers and travelers the world over, and at best they are an annoyance, and at worst they are a serious threat to health. The mosquito is a known vector in a range of life threatening diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and many others and it has been estimated that they are responsible for infecting over 700 million people every year, transmitting fatal illnesses to over 2 million.

Whilst there are vaccines and drugs which can be taken to protect against many of these diseases, resistance is building up in many areas and many treatments are becoming less effective. The malaria carrying mosquito from the Anophyles family has been found to be resistant to many insecticides, and even now some of the common malaria prevention drugs.  If you want to make sure that you stay disease free on your travels, and do not have to deal with painful bites, the best defence is to go on the attack and declare war on mosquitoes. For that you need Lifesystems.

Lifesystems are experts when it comes to mosquitoes, and provide a range of equipment and chemicals to get you tooled up for the fight.  Mosquitoes are crepuscular feeders, and dusk and dawn is the time when you are most likely to be attacked. Some particularly aggressive species are active in the day and the best defence is with mosquito repellents containing DEET, a chemical which even the most determined mosquito has trouble dealing with.  Lifesystems produces a rage of DEET sprays of varying intensities, for light protection to all out chemical warfare on the devious little critters. Designed to protect from the Scottish Highlands to dense African jungles, the company provides a level of protection to suit, with one application giving 8-10 hours of protection.  When DEET just isn’t enough, there is the Expedition 100+ range, which also uses natural pyrethroids to ensure that if a mosquito does make a landing that it will be sure to make a hasty retreat. These contact repellents are excellent for use in areas where there is a high prevalence of disease, for the maximum possible protection.

You should never underestimate the resourcefulness and ingenuity of these biting insects when it comes to finding a way to get through defences.  One mis-spray could leave a potential area for bites, and you can be sure your average mosquito will find it. The tiniest hole in defences can be all it takes, and for when you are asleep and your guard is down; a Lifesystems mosquito net is the best bet.  The strong mosquito nets are lightweight for easy packing, can be easily erected, and provide a total defence against night time bites.  In case a body part touches the net, and gets within biting distance, the nets are treated with EX8 AntiMosquito, a quite wonderful chemical which repels the insects, and kills the really determined ones on contact.

Armed to the teeth with Lifesystems anti-mosquito kit you can be sure that you will not just win the battle, but the war as well.
