Sports enthusiasts that live for the great outdoors often experience discomfort. You might love hiking, biking, mountain climbing, or paddling. There is little that expresses the danger and thrill associated with extreme sport.
But there are certain natural elements that can dampen the experience. Like bug bites. Mosquito bites need not form part of your adventure activity when you use protection from mosquitoes.
No number of bites can keep sports enthusiasts indoors. There is too much of an adrenalin rush to keep them away. That is why Mozzie Patches are such a brilliant option. They are easy to wear and the natural answer for adrenalin junkies.
Are you planning on doing adventure racing or adventure travel activities? You can avoid mosquito-borne diseases by taking precautions. Take these steps to avoid mosquito bites when you adventure in nature.
Any warmups or post-run cool downs are best done indoors. This way, mosquitoes won’t get to you. Do those stretches indoors if you are a mosquito magnet.
If your extreme sport takes place after dusk, and before dawn, avoid these times. Mosquitoes are more active during these hours.
Mosquitoes are more attracted to your post-workout. The reason is that the chemicals released by perspiration are attractive to mosquitoes. Antiperspirant measures can assist in these situations.
Covering up is a great deterrent when working out. This might not always make sense when the temperatures rise in summer. South Africa gets hot during the summer, yet long pants and long-sleeved tops are advisable to deter mozzies.
Use repellents wherever possible. DEET mosquito repellent sprays can cause reactions and have risks associated with us. Natural is best and lasts longer. Our patches use Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) as the only active ingredient to repel mosquitoes.
Mozzie Patches will give you protection for up to 36 hours, and they are 100% natural. You can swim, hike, climb and ride without knowing you are wearing one.
Avoid bodies of water wherever possible. Mosquitoes love wet ground and stagnant water. This is because they do most of their breeding and feeding in wet environments.
Always choose windy or hot sunshine days when taking a rest day. These conditions will limit mosquito activity. Avoid shady spots wherever possible.
When planning a camping trip, try to pitch your tent in a more exposed area. This should face the wind as high wind speeds can keep mosquitoes in check.
The mesh netting of tents is no deterrent for mosquitoes. Dousing the mesh panels with repellent will help the situation.
Certain adventure sports seem to attract more mosquitoes than necessary. How does your favourite adventure sport measure up against the bite? Spectators are also prone to getting bitten. Exertion, movement, sweat, and even the location can lead to bites.
The carbon dioxide that we breathe out attracts mosquitoes. When your breathing becomes laboured with exertion, this attracts mosquitoes.
Movement might not be the main event, but mosquitoes do sense movement. Movement attracts mosquitoes when you partake in outdoor activities.
Dense bushes and bodies of water are mosquito breeding grounds. Mosquitoes need water to breed and feed. Avoid these areas when outside.
Studies show that exercise could increase the need for Vitamin B1 and other B vitamins in the human body. We also refer to vitamin B1 as Thiamine. The reason is that we need B vitamins to produce energy and repair tissues in the body.
The body needs B vitamins for normal recovery after exercising. Individuals who train hard for sport or those that are in physically demanding jobs need replenishments. These include vitamin thiamine, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and extra vitamin B6.
The extra amounts needed are not massive. We can often get a vitamin balance from the food we eat. When thiamine intake in healthy adult men drops, performance levels become lower. Thiamine is best absorbed through the skin, which is where our patches come in.
