Both are easily available in India in supermarkets or friendly neighbourhood shops. Wearing long sleeves and trousers also goes a long way in preventing oneself from being covered in bites.

    I live in the Southern part of the U.S. and the West Nile Virus is a big problem with mosquitoes in that area. I can not think of much reason for mosquitoes, but I know everything has a purpose. However they are annoying. I can imagine they are a big problem in India also.

    I would prefer mosquito nets to protect myself from the blood sucking mosquito when at home and prefer wearing long sleeves when outdoors.

    Samurai Insect Trapper did a great job of getting rid of those pesky flies & mosquitoes. In no time the strip filled up with flies. The price is reasonable and got here quickly too.
