Mosquito Repellent Information and Advice:

Mosquitoes are biting insects from the family Culicidae. Mosquitoes are identified by a pair of scaled wings, a slender body, and long thin legs. It is actually only female mosquitoes that suck the blood of other animals but this makes them the most deadly insects known to man, killing millions of people throughout history and continuing to do so, particuarly in countries with poor sanitation or limited availability of treatments.

Mosquitos vary in length but are generally smaller than 16mm. They can fly for up to 4 hours continuously and travel over 10 km on one flight. Many species of mosquitoes are nocturnal or feed only at dawn and dusk, and they often rest in a hidden, cool place during the day making infestations of mosquitoes hard to locate.
