The Blue Bay resort sprays a product against mosquitoes every week. Besides, all our beds as well as all the bedroom windows are protected by mosquito nets.
Use light clothing that covers all parts of your body when the mosquito is more active (at dawn and dusk). Use long sleeves and pants.
The use of repellents is one of the most effective ways to protect your family against mosquitoes. Use it on all exposed parts of the body. If you are using sun protection, apply this first and secondly the repellent.
Important: Choose a repellent containing the active ingredient: DEET. Products containing: Picaridin, Oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535are also effective.
The percent of the active ingredient indicates the length of protection. For instance a product containing 20% to 25% DEET will protect you for 6 to 8 hours. It is not necessary to buy a product with a higher concentration since it will not protect you better only slightly longer.
Repellents are available in all supermarket and drugstores.
