Better knowledge of the different biting insects of the mosquito family
The Culex Mosquito
Culex mosquitoes are the predominant mosquitoes in metropolitan France. There are many species including the Culex pipiens or common mosquito that we all know.
Most subspecies of Culex prefer to prick birds to men or other mammals. They are therefore often considered less dangerous than Anopheles or Aedes mosquitoes. However, they can spread serious diseases such as West Nile fever or Japanese encephalitis.
The Tiger Mosquito (Aedes albopictus)
There are about 260 species of mosquitoes of the genus Aedes on the planet. The mosquito Aedes derives its name from ancient Greek, which means "unpleasant", and is justified by the very strong nuisance that this type of mosquito very aggressive and with the painful sting entails.
The Anopheles mosquito
Of the 3,500 species of mosquitoes present, there are approximately 430 species of the genus Anopheles. Very dreaded, the mosquito Anopheles is the mosquito capable of transmitting malaria.
Sandflies are very small insects that resemble small gnats. They are likely to transmit serious diseases.

How to choose your mosquito spray
Repellents to be applied to the skin are particularly suitable means of protection when traveling or in outdoor areas. They protect areas not covered by clothing. Anti-mosquito sprays based on DEET , a chemical active created by the United States Department of Agriculture in 1942, provide lasting protection (about 10 hours) and reliable. Their mode of action makes it possible to blur the olfactory receptors of mosquitoes, which are no longer able to recognize the smell of human skin. They can be combined with dipping lotions for clothing, also based on DEET. Chemical repellents can be used in infants and pregnant women at lower concentrations (around 20% to 30%).
Mosquito spray repellents can quickly cover a large area of skin but in return they increase the risk of accidental dispersion in the eyes or on the mucous membranes. This is a point on which the adult will take particular care when applying the repellent to a child.
Mosquito nets impregnated with repellent lotion block the passage of insects thanks to very fine mesh. They are installed in front of openings such as French windows, bay windows and windows. It is also possible to hang them around a bed or a cradle, for peaceful nights.
Anti-mosquito essential oils are natural solutions to keep mosquitoes away. They can be used by people who do not want to use chemical repellents or who are allergic to DEET. Essential oils of tea tree , geranium and lemongrass are considered the most effective. They can be diffused into the surrounding air or applied directly to the skin after being mixed with vegetable oil.
Anti-mosquito bracelets follow you everywhere. Very practical , they are intended for all those who do not appreciate the application of anti-mosquito lotions on their body. The bracelets are worn directly on the wrist or ankle . The wafer, formulated with essential oils diffuses its active principles.
Anti-mosquito devices and repellents based on natural ingredients can be used at any age and by pregnant women.
The roll-on anti-moustqiues allow a topical anti - mosquito protection based on essential oils which offers a reinforced protection of 5 hours. The anti-mosquito in a roll on allows an easy and precise application on the body and the face, without having to spread.
