The insect Repellent Factors® is a quick and easy way to choose what repellent you need to protect yourself from mosquitoes and other biting insects.
For use in areas with a high risk of malaria or other insect transmitted diseases. Up to 9 hours of mosquito protection from a single application* against the most common mosquito species (Culex species). For some (tropical) mosquito species the protection time can be much shorter: on average 4 hours of protection against the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) and 8 hours against the malaria mosquito (Anopheles stephensi). For adults and children from 18 years.
Up to 9 hours protection* from mosquitoes and biting insects.
*Factors such as high temperature, humidity and transpiration can influence the duration of protection of all insect repellents. Repeat application after swimming, showering or when the efficacy decreases. It is recommended that clothing is used to cover any untreated areas of skin and so restrict access to biting insects. Approved by the London Hospital for Tropical Diseases
For travellers visiting areas with a high risk of malaria and other insect transmitted diseases provided that directions for use are followed at all times.
