Tell us about the BEST HIKE you've ever taken! Photos are welcome. 📷

We love protecting families from mosquitoes and ticks in their own backyards, but it's very important to take precautions when you're out trailblazing the wilderness, too. Here are a few tips 👇

1. BUG SPRAY 🦟
Don’t leave home without it. Whether you’re camping, hiking or even just taking a walk in the park, a few sprays of this on your skin and clothing will help you enjoy your outdoor adventure without having to be on swat alert.

2. TEA TREE OIL 🌿
While tea tree oil can be healthy and healing for humans, it’s actually quite toxic to many insects. Put some on your skin before heading outside to reduce the risk of getting bit. If a mosquito manages to slip through, applying tea tree oil to the affected area will provide immediate relief.

3. SOCKS 🧦
Hiking is one of summer’s most popular activities and while it provides us with gorgeous sceneries and breathtaking views, it also increases our exposure to mosquitoes and ticks. So before you embark on your next rugged adventure, throw long socks on and tuck in the bottom of your pants to seal the entryway for any pests.

4. HAT 🧢
There’s nothing worse than getting a bug stuck in your hair, especially when it’s a mosquito with its own agenda. We’ve all been that person at least once in our lives who feels or hears a bug fly in, then proceeds to flail our bodies around until it’s out. Do yourself a favor and sport a hat to avoid a potential public catastrophe.

MOSQUITOES

WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!

MOSQUITOES 101, DISEASES & PRODUCT INFO

The Mosquito has been called the deadliest killer on the planet and mosquito-borne diseases are responsible for the deaths of more than one million people each year. With a single bite, the mosquito can cause great havoc, spreading devastating illnesses like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya or even Heartworm in pets. In the United States, we tend to be less aware of the deadly role that mosquitoes play in the ecosystem of other countries despite the fact that each year over 1,000 Americans experience serious illness or even death as a result of a mosquito bite.

MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASE VECTORS OF INFECTION

West Nile Virus (WNV)

First found in Uganda in 1937, WNV has spread globally. Its flulike symptoms include fever, headache, and body aches. More serious symptoms include disorientation, muscle weakness, neck stiffness and more. Eighty percent of West Nile cases will never display any symptoms.

Heartworm

This parasitic roundworm infects dogs and other animals. The heartworm larva is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito and proceeds through a variety of life stages. The heartworm takes residence in the host’s heart where it grows to impressive lengths. It is of the greatest concern in canines where it most frequently leads to serious repercussions.

Encephalitis

Among the most serious condition linked to mosquitoes, encephalitis is the inflammation of the brain. It starts as a virus that usually resolves itself, but in the cases that it worsens, it can invade the central nervous system and cause encephalitis. Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE) is the most common encephalitis and can affect humans and horses.

Malaria

Eradicated in the US in the 1940s, malaria continues to kill millions in Africa each year. Malaria is both preventable and treatable. To help fight the spread of malaria, Mosquito Squad is a proud supporter of Malaria No More, a nonprofit working to make sure every family in Africa has timely access to the tools they need to prevent, diagnose and treat malaria.
