Outbreak of mosquitoes after Hurricane Florence

An outbreak of blood-sucking mosquitoes called Psorophora ciliata, or “gallinippers,” which can grow three times larger than regular mosquitos, is being reported in parts of the state flooded by the Hurricane Florence, creating a public nuisance and health concerns.

We suggest Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent an alternative to DEET chemicals sprays. It is effective, naturally based insect protection that repels mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus for up to 6 hours. It contains Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus.

For mosquito bites please use Hydrocortisone USP for temporary relief of itching.
