Why Are Mosquitoes So Dangerous?


Mosquitoes are not just another bug like an annoying fly that will ruin your favorite outdoor activities, but they are actually the most dangerous creature that you come in contact with on a daily basis. Mosquitoes are dangerous because they carry and transmit infectious diseases to other living organisms.  

Malaria, Yellow Fever, West Nile virus, Dengue fever, and Zika virus are among the most commonly known diseases transmitted by mosquitoes. Worldwide, malaria is a leading cause of premature mortality, particularly in children under 5 years old. Disease symptoms include high fevers, rash, seizures, fatigue, headaches, nausea, gastrointestinal upset, mental confusion, paralysis, and pain in muscles, bones, and joints.

The most effective way to avoid illnesses transmitted by mosquitoes is to prevent mosquito bites. When used as directed, repellents are the best way to protect your family. While many repellents use a chemical known as diethyltoluamide or DEET, 4 Ring Protection provides effective natural repellents that are safe for application at anytime. Our products do not contain any parabens, sulfates, or dyes. Using natural ingredients and essential oils, 4 Ring Protection is clinically proven effective at repelling mosquitoes and is approved by dermatologists and pediatricians alike.
