Holidays in the Caribbean and South America can be devastated by Chikungunya Virus. Chikungunya virus is spread by mosquito bites. Specifically Aedes: A.albopictus and A. aegypti. Pioneer Herbal Products Holiday Pack includes 50ml mini-spray, refill for 2 additional sprays and 2 tubs of Pioneer Mosquito Repellent and After Bite. Excellent protection for your family holiday.

 Chikungunya Virus causes an infection which results in a sudden fever that can last up to seven days. Joint pains which can be from mild to very severe can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months to several years. The current (2013/2014/2015) strain has been spreading throughout the Caribbean and South American region and has been carried in to Canada and the USA such that an increasing number of cases has been reported. In Jamaica the rate of infection has resulted in the government issuing an edpidemic warning. Various animals are reservoirs for the virus; among them are monkeys, birds, cattle and rodents. The number of reported cases of Chikungunya Virus in these regions in the 6 months May to November 2014 increased from 188,000 to over 900,000 cases - an increase of nearly FIVE times.
The best means of prevention is mosquito control. Attempt to prevent bites by creams, repellents, after bite applications, sprays, coil burning and strict cleanliness of outside areas, filling in small pools around houses and gardens where breeding can occur, particularly after rain fall.
Pioneer Herbal Products manufacture a Holiday Pack that includes a 50ml Mini-Spray containing an all natural blend of 9 oils known to deter flying biting insects. A refill bottle is provided that will fill 2 additional Mini-Sprays. Also included are 1 or 2 (depending on availability) of After Bite Balm in an airless pump, which also acts as a preventitive and which will soothe any bitten area. This Pioneer Holiday Pack is a really effective and economic solution for a family of four for a minimum of at least one week, while careful use will probably cover two weeks. The spray can also be used on bedding, pillows, cushions, carpets and rugs. The spray and the balm may be used directly on the skin before going out onto a beach or for social events outside at night.
