Mosi-guard is the most effective way of protecting yourself from annoying biting insects. It is the most widely used and natural insect repellent. Mosi – guard comes in two ways, a roll-on or sprays and will provide you with protection for at least 6 hours. The active ingredient of Mosi-guard is Citriodol, a naturally occurring extract of lemon eucalyptus oil.
Mosi-guard will protect you against mosquitoes, sandflies, ticks, and midges. It can also protect you against leeches. Use it in all areas where malaria is present. It is registered for use in children ages 3 months and over in the UK.
You may not catch Malaria or yellow fever in Australia, but you can catch Ross River Virus, Barmah Forest Encephalitis, Dengue Fever, Japanese Encephalitis virus infections. The bites can be painful, itchy, and irritating.
Ticks can be found in wooded or forested areas. When they get hungry for blood, they crawl up the leaves of plants and attach to passing people or animals. Ticks transmit a number of dangerous diseases such as Tick-borne Encephalitis, Spotted fever, and Lyme Disease.
Sandflies are tiny insects sometimes called “no see ums”. They are also midges. These tiny little devils spread sand fly fevers and a serious disease called leishmaniasis.
Even though they are not usually the same as biting insects, leeches are just “yuk”. Scientific tests in leech-infected areas prove that Mosi – guard is also a very effective leech repellent.
