I havent heard any cruiser who has got it yet.
Yes, got to keep the Deet spray up. And thats Deet, not the other stuff sold thats effectual for only a few minutes, or not at all. And if you think Eucalyptus oil
is effective against mosquitos remember what trees it comes from... Like there's no mozzies in Australia
Especially important is to keep a bottle when out so top up sparys can be done. I have a couple of very small, pocket size bottle.
Some of the bars here are terrible and the mozzies come up through the floor boards.
Other thing to be careful of, and this isnt meant to sound racist, but to be wary when in close proximity to locals. The feaver is pretty rife amounst them but not the cruisers or tourists as we are less exposed to groups of people. So if hanging out in crowds during the daytime spray well and good. Remember the mosquito that carries it operates during the day. It must suck blood from someone infected and then come and suck bolld for you thus transfering the virus. You can actually see the white bands of the mosquitos legs when they fly past... Bit its getting harder to see their legs at all as I get older!
