Malaria is a common disease in the tropical countries. This does not mean that the disease Malaria is not present in the developed countries. There are incidences of Malaria reported from almost all countries in the world. Malaria is transmitted from one person to another because of the bite of a mosquito. When the mosquito bites a person who is infected with Malaria and then bites another person who is not infected, the infection is transmitted from the affected person to the healthy person.
The best method of preventing the occurrence of Malaria is by the use of various repellents for Malaria. The repellents have various uses, but they have certain disadvantages too. The repellents that are used to keep the mosquitoes away are all effective only for a particular period of time. Once the effect of the mosquito repellent wears off, it can cause the mosquitoes to bite and cause the disease.
The best methods of keeping away the mosquitoes are the nets that are used when you sleep. If you live in a area where there is a lot of mosquitoes, then the best thing that can be done is to use these nets at night when you sleep. During the day time and other times, repellents are useful and when a person is active, there is a less risk of mosquito bites. Most of the malaria causing bites by the mosquitoes occurs during the night when the person is sleeping. This can be prevented by the regular use of the mosquito nets.
The nets to prevent the entry of mosquitoes are either normal nets or they can have a layer of mosquito repelling medication on it. This will prevent the mosquitoes from going near the net and prevent Malaria in the person. This is the economical and efficient method of avoiding Malaria.
