This insect repellent spray protects against mosquitoes, sand flies and other biting insects(1) that can transmit diseases such as malaria(2), Japanese encephalitis(3) or the Zika virus(4). It can also protect against ticks(5) – however, it is not a substitute for a tick-borne encephalitits vaccination!
For more information, please contact your doctor or pharmacist.
