The majority of safari lodges and operators will provide you with a mosquito net - which is hung over your bed. But this is not effective in repelling mosquitoes and flying insects from the rest of your room or tent - an area in which you may be bitten. As a result, this portable unit is your first line of defense in ensuring that your room is mosquito free, and forms part of our recommended four tier strategy against malaria: 1) Consult a medical professional about anti-malaria medication; 2) Ensure that you wear a long sleeve safari shirt, and trousers in the evening to prevent being bitten; 3) Spray Expedition 50+ insect repellent onto your skin, and the Expedition 100+ insect repellent onto your clothing; 4) Make your room as insect & mosquito free as possible. Pack the Portable Mosquito Killer Unit & replacement tablets, to effectively repel flying insects.
