Do you know how to stop mosquitos and other biting insects wanting to feast on you?

With Lyme's Disease and Zika Virus increasingly problematic - not to mention the pain of mozzie bites - this is worth knowing!

Mosquitoes spread the Zika Virus, biting during the day and night. These mosquitoes also spread Dengue and Chikungunya viruses... as well as Lyme's Disease and Ross River Fever.

The best way to prevent Zika Virus is to protect yourself from mosquito bites.

Easier said than done, you say?

Help is at hand.

Here are your five simple steps to protect yourself from mosquito bites

  1. Wear mosquito repellent... find out what type is best
  2. Take supplements so you are less attractive to mozzies - but which ones?
  3. Wear loose, long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors...
  4. Where possible, don't allow standing water to accumulate - empty buckets and store them upside down, for instance
  5. Sleep with a mosquito net over your bed and take other steps to stop those little biters from attacking you at night.

Biting insects can leave more than an an itchy bump.

Lyme's Disease, Ross River Fever, Dengue fever and Zika Virus are affecting increasing numbers of people worldwide.

Some international specialists in Lyme's Disease such as Lilias Amheira say that 80% of biting insects now carry Lyme's Disease.

As prevention is always better than cure, what more can you do?

On nearly all the continents of the world, mosquitos can get you!

For example, of the 300 types of mozzie flying around Australia, a dozen of these little (blood) suckers actually transmit mosquito-borne disease.

“Initially, they’re attracted by the carbon dioxide we exhale,” Dr Webb wrote in an article for The Conversation.

“Body heat is probably important too, but once the mosquito gets closer, she will respond to the smell of a potential blood source’s skin.

“Wearing insect repellent like DEET or Picaridin gives the longest lasting protecting and are the most effective,” Dr Webb said.

“Plant-based repellents such as citronella or tea-tree oil need to be reapplied much more frequently to provide the same protection against mosquitos.

“But it’s important to remember that insect repellent needs to be applied like sunscreen — to all exposed skin. A dab here or there won’t provide enough protection.”

Although most bites leave us with an itch and a red raised lump, around 5,000 people across Australia fall ill due to Ross River virus each year.

“Right across Australia, the biggest concern, apart from a bit of nuisance biting, mosquitoes can cause is the transmission of Ross River virus.”

“You’re just as likely to get it south of Perth as you are on the south coast of New South Wales or in far north Queensland,” he said.

Some of the symptoms include joint pain, fever, rash, and headache.

“You might have a really mild case, [which] feels like you’ve got a flu for a few days but sometimes it can be really debilitating and you can be bedridden for many weeks or months,” he said.

Dengue fever is also a mosquito-transmitted virus that occurs in the tropics or subtropics of Australia. Every year there are dengue fever outbreaks in north Queensland; in 2014 there were more than 1500 confirmed cases across the country. 

And that's just Australia!

According to the ABC Health and Wellbeing, globally, the number of people with dengue fever is increasing each year.

In the USA, South and Central America, many cities are being sprayed against mosquitoes to try and stop the Zika Virus from spreading. 

What else can you do to protect yourself?

Ever wondered why some people don't seem to get bitten? Did you know that Vitamin B deficiency makes you much more attractive to those biting insects?

Taking Thiamin (Vitamin B1) and B12 appear to make you less appealing to mosquitoes, providing you with some protection without sprays or barriers!

So make sure you get your genuine Vitamin B complex vitamins at the right dose and help to stop Lyme's Disease, the Zika Virus, Ross River and Denge Fevers from claiming another victim.

So those five steps again, in detail, are:

    1. Wear mosquito repellent... try natural ones like Lemon Myrtle when possible to reduce your exposure to toxins. Have heavy duty sprays containing Deet on hand if all else fails but try to avoid these if natural ones will do the trick.
    2. Take premium complete Vitamin B complex supplements with selenium such as NeuraBoost
    3. Cover your skin as much as possible if in areas known for mozzies...
    4. Where possible, don't allow standing water to accumulate - empty buckets and store them upside down, for instance
    5. Sleep with a mosquito net over your bed or screen the windows in your bedroom; keep your bedroom and bathroom doors shut during the day and night to stop mozzies from entering and lying in wait for you

Scientific Info:
Lemon myrtle shows remarkable functionality as an antimicrobial and antifungal product, showing effectiveness against a hospital isolate of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (1).

Lemon myrtle shows a broad-spectrum activity against food borne human pathogens, common food spoilage bacteria and common food spoilage yeasts and moulds as well as high anti oxidant activity (2,3,6,7).

As well as having potential in natural food preservation and as a natural surface cleaning agent, it is currently investigated in the biological control of post harvest diseases in fruits and vegetables (4,5).

Lemon myrtle was found to have higher lutein content (6.56 mg/100g DW) than avocado (0.6-1.05mg/100g DW), which is considered to be a primary source of carotenoid important for eye health. It has demonstrated superior antioxidant activity in the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) test: (3359.87mol TEq/g DW) with the hydrophilic fraction contributing 56.2 % and the lipophilic fraction 45.8%, due to the high citral content and Vitamin E (21.2 mg/100g DW).

 A FRAP assay of the same product (1225.3+/-72.2 mol Fe +2/g DW) confirmed high anti oxidant activity.

Lemon myrtle is exceptionally rich in Ca and contains 71mg/100g DW Folate (8).
