Is the Baygon Genius electric inscecticidal diffuser effective against mosquitoes at night? Can you purchase it in San Miguel? It does not seem to be available in the USA.
The CDC makes the following recommendations concerning Malaria:
“Mexico: Risk in rural areas, including resorts in rural areas, of the following states: Campeche, Chiapas, Guerrero, Michoacán, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo, Sinaloa, and Tabasco. In addition, risk exists in Jalisco State (in its mountainous northern area only). Risk also exists in an area between 24° north and 28° north latitude and 106° west and 110° west longitude which lies in parts of the states of Sonora, Chihuahua, and Durango. No malaria risk along the United States-Mexico border. No malaria risk in the major resorts (that is, resorts located in urban areas) along the Pacific and Gulf coasts, although tourists should use insect repellent and other anti-mosquito measures.”
“All travelers to malaria-risk areas in Mexico and Central America (except for Darién Province and San Blas Province in Panama; see below for those areas), including infants, children, and former residents of these countries, should take chloroquine as their antimalarial drug.”
