Insect Repellent Awareness
3rd June 2015
What is Bug Off?
The Bug Off campaign has been launched by scientists from arctec at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to highlight the importance of using repellents, especially when travelling to tropical countries where insects can spread disease. The campaign also aims to dispel the many myths surrounding insect repellents and other ways to protect against bites.
This ongoing campaign is aimed at helping people to protect themselves and their families from insect bites when in the UK or abroad. Activities this year include a trip to Heathrow airport terminal 2 to educate travellers about the importance of protecting themselves from insect bites when going abroad and an educational programme of visits to schools with a poster competition.
