If you are planning to vacation with your family in 2021, you have probably read the CDC's recommendations for travel. While this is likely the biggest consideration for your trip this year, it is important to remember to protect yourself from mosquitoes, as well. What kinds of mosquito protection products will help keep you safer while on vacation?

Mosquito protection for vacation travel - personal repellents

Whether you will be visiting sunny South Florida or flying to an island destination for vacation, there are a few types of personal mosquito repellents available. Protecting yourself from mosquito bites is a matter of maintaining your health. With mosquito-borne illnesses, such as Zika and West Nile virus, you must utilize some sort of personal protection while away from home. There are personal protection methods for indoor and outdoor use.

Indoor mosquito protection devices

There are a variety of indoor mosquito traps and ultrasonic repellent devices. If you are staying in a tropical location, where you will have open windows and doors, you might consider an ultrasonic or bug light device. There are models specifically made for travel, which are small, light-weight, and battery-powered. These could also be used in tents or RVs! It is also recommended to only leave windows and doors open if the openings have screens.

Outdoor mosquito protection products

For outdoor patios and courtyards, you can find products containing citronella, which will help repel mosquitoes in a small area. Long-burning citronella coils and candles are available at local stores for quick pick-up before you hit the road or skies. You can also purchase sprays that contain DEET or an all-natural spray with an essential oils base. It is highly recommended to check the proper use and effectiveness of these products, as well the complete list of contents.

As with any liquid or other personal device with batteries, you should check to ensure that the one you choose is airline approved.
