As we look towards summer, and our buzzing brethren ramp up their assaults, we often come across a range of questions.

Will RID protect me from Malaria, Ross River Virus and Dengue Fever?

The Australian Health Departments and the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia recommend that people use personal insect repellents containing DEET to protect themselves from catching diseases, such as Malaria, Ross River virus, and Dengue Fever which are carried by mosquitoes. Because RID contains DEET, it will protect you from disease carrying insects.

Townsville prepares for ‘Cyclone Sunday’.

Besides sending adventurers to the Amazon, to put RID to the ultimate test, we are also involved in preparing Australians for the upcoming summer storm season. Dengue Fever can cause havoc in the aftermath of tropical storm activity, so being prepared for cyclones, storms and or flooding rains includes knowing all the risks. Simply applying a repellent can help prevent infection from disease carrying mosquitoes.

We are very proud to be a sponsor of this free community-awareness event in Townsville. ‘Cyclone Sunday’ will be held Sunday 2nd November in Strand Park, so if you’re in the area, bring the kids, bring your family and come down. Over 40 information displays PLUS Kids activities and free giveaways. We are looking forward to saying hello and helping out with a few prizes to be won, free KID RID Tattoos and balloons.

The RID Amazon DT Challenge - Where are we going?

Now, the Amazon is an awfully large area, encompassing many kilometers of rugged, insect-heavy terrain. Where our adventure begins, will be the wonderfully unique capital of Peru - Lima. However, there won’t be much sight seeing, a quick hop and a skip to the east, and we arrive at the ‘gateway’ to the Amazon – Iquitos. It’s here our Challenger Sean, will get his first taste of what this adventure is all about. Best of luck mate, the countdown till departure is on!

It’s – one man, one pair of DTs, one can of RID, and one MIGHTY big Amazon. Watch this space!
