Mosquitoes are a problem most everywhere, and there are many types. These annoying insects plague us with more than their itchy bites, they are carriers of dangerous diseases.
West Nile Virus is transmitted predominately by Culex mosquitoes. Unlike other mosquitoes that die with the first hard frost in autumn, the house mosquito can “over-winter” in protected places like sewers, crawlspaces and basements.
In recent years, the West Nile virus has been the most common disease transmitted by mosquitoes, other biting flies and ticks. West Nile virus arrived in the United States in 1999. In 2002, Illinois led the nation in West Nile disease cases with 884 and 67 deaths.
Like all encephalitis producing viruses, West Nile virus survives in birds and/or mammals, using them as reservoirs. Most birds and mammals survive infection. About 80 percent of humans develop no symptoms after being infected with the virus, developing at least a temporary immunity.
Persons older than 50 years of age, and those with compromised immune systems, are much more likely to develop West Nile fever symptoms include fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and rash, which are mild symptoms to severe symptoms that include neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, tremor, coma, vision loss, and paralysis.
These severe symptoms could last weeks, could be permanent or could evolve into being life-threatening nervous system complications such as meningitis or encephalitis. The onset of symptoms usually begins three to 14 days after a mosquito bite.
Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, Malaria and Dengue Fever are a few of the diseases transmitted by mosquito bites.
The disease problems mosquitoes spread are becoming more common and widespread than most people realize. In fact, Dengue fever has become more common than influenza in many countries. It has spread to South America and now even Florida, Texas and other Southern States…
According to Dr. Mercola’s website mercola.com:
“Dengue is on the rise worldwide and spreading faster than any other insect-borne viral disease. It is a threat to people in more than 100 countries, potentially affecting 2.5 billion people worldwide. Dengue infection typically causes high fever, crushing headache, severe pain behind your eyes, rash, and excruciating pain in your joints and spine, which is why it’s sometimes called “break bone fever.” Dr. Renu Daval-Drager of the World Health Organization says some cases of Dengue can be fatal, particularly the more serious Dengue hemorrhagic fever.
This under-recognized infectious disease used to be restricted to tropical areas; however, it has recently made its way into Texas, Florida and other southern states and is endemic in 125 countries. And Dengue has reached epidemic levels in Central America.
Outbreaks of Dengue virus occur primarily in areas where Aedes aegypti and sometimes Aedes albopictus mosquitoes live and breed. This includes most tropical areas of the world—the same places where malaria is found. Dengue is also spread by travelers who become infected while visiting Dengue-infested regions.
In the Americas, all four Dengue virus types are now present. Worldwide, there are about three to five million cases of influenza annually. However, there are about 100 million cases of Dengue fever annually, worldwide—20 times more cases than influenza!“
So, what to do about mosquitoes and preventing their bite in the first place?
The best way to reduce your risk of infection with mosquito-borne viruses is to prevent mosquito bites in the first place. Wear light colored long sleeves, long pants and socks or even stay indoors while mosquitoes are most active. It is also important to strengthen your immune system in the event you do get bit by a mosquito carrying some type of virus.
A Natural Mosquito Repellant that Actually Works!
We’ve come across information about a mosquito repellant patch that provides 36 hours of effective protection and is also safe and non-toxic. The product is “Mosquito NO BITE” (TRR Enterprises Inc.) Retails for about $10 800-789-3991 For more information about the different types of mosquitoes and the diseases they carry visit the NO BITE website: www.nobite.us
Due to it’s thiamine-based sulfur-scent, (which is undetectable by humans) the NO BITE patch creates an invisible barrier to mosquitoes on all skin surface areas making you less susceptible to: California LaCrosse Encephalitis in the Midwest, St Louis Encephalitis, Western Equine and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus and in rare situations Malaria, Dengue and Yellow Fever.
This repellant patch has NO side effects and is 100% FREE of DEET and Toxins. It contains 300 mg of 100% thiamine, a safe, natural, affordable, long-lasting and effective repellent used all over the world.
Dr. Phil Wazny, a Naturopathic Doctor in Scottsdale, Arizona who graduated magna cu m laude in Biology and Biochemistry from the University of Colorado said,
“A study done in the 1960s demonstrated that thiamine creates a skin odor that female mosquitoes, the biters, find repulsive but is undetectable to humans”.
NOTE: Thiamine can be gained in very small amounts from food sources which is sufficient for the daily function of the human body but not for mosquito protection.
By using the MOSQUITO NO BITE patch the excess thiamine that cannot be used by the body is simply excreted through your 2.6 million sweat glands, breath, and urine thus protecting the whole body from biting insects safely and naturally.
