Why prevent mosquito bites ?

    The mosquito pierces the skin with a proboscis. During the bite, the mosquito injects an anticoagulant and anesthetic saliva. The human immune system reacts to this saliva, causing inflammation and possibly itching. Some people react only mildly to the bite, while others react more strongly, with swelling, pain and redness. If the mosquito is infected, it can transmit pathogens when biting, making it all the more important to avoid bites in areas where mosquito-borne diseases are present.
    Although it is impossible to prevent all contact with mosquitoes, it is possible to apply certain individual preventive measures to limit contact and thus prevent mosquito bites. These include measures to prevent mosquito bites and, more generally, to reduce the nuisance caused by mosquitoes.
