A new product from a new company that promises to make you vomit, and that’s how you’ll feel about guava fruit flies in the next week or so.
Guava fruit fly (GFP) is a mosquito-borne virus that causes severe illness and death.
The disease has been in decline in recent years, with just 4.5 million cases reported worldwide last year.
Now, a company called GuavaFarms is hoping to make people think twice about using the fruit fly’s insect repellent.
“GFP is a very dangerous disease,” said Matt Jones, a senior scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which oversees the disease.
“The effects are severe.
It can kill people in the short term, but in the long term, it’s very dangerous.”
What’s a Guava Fly?
Guava fruitflies, which are native to South America, are the same type of mosquitoes that cause dengue fever.
They feed on mosquitoes and lay eggs that hatch into larvae, which then feed on the mosquito larvae.
In the first few weeks of infection, the larvae can infect people, and then die of the disease after the mosquito larva is no longer around.
Guavas are also very active, which can be especially dangerous for people with weakened immune systems.
Jones said GFP is much more dangerous than dengues because it can infect mosquitoes that are very young and can take up to a week to grow.
If you are using a mosquito repellant like the one from Guava Farms, you should use a repellents that contains at least 10 percent DEET, or the active ingredient in Bisphenol A, or BPA, to keep your body’s immune system in check.
GFP can also be transmitted through close contact, and it can be hard to tell if a mosquito has GFP when it flies through your hand.
The only thing you can do to help prevent GFP transmission is to not feed the mosquitoes, and to not let the mosquitoes touch you.
There are two different ways to use guava-flavored repellants: 1) You can put the product into a spray bottle and shake it vigorously.
2) You use the product in a spray canister or in a cup and pour the liquid into a cotton swab.
“We have the first one that’s designed specifically to be used for this purpose,” Jones said.
How do you feel about Guava Farms guava repellence?
The company says that it is a combination of ingredients and can be used as an insect repealant or for cleaning.
It is a mixture of two ingredients: 2% DEET and 2% BPA.
The DEET is made from a chemical called formaldehyde.
When formaldehyde is exposed to air, it breaks down and becomes a formaldehyde byproduct.
If you shake the canister vigorously, it makes a very strong spray.
You can also use it as a disinfectant to help kill insects.
Guavas also have a very potent bite that can be painful, but Jones said they do not pose a health risk if you use them in a way that doesn’t cause skin irritation.
If you have a family member who has GFR or you have children in your home, Jones said it is best to avoid using guava products in their household.
For more information on GFP, you can read more about it in the CDC’s website.
Are you affected by GFP?
If your family member has GFI, you may have mild symptoms, such as feeling nauseous or tired, but they are not likely to become seriously ill.
When GFI symptoms develop, you need to be tested.
Jones said you should have a follow-up test in three to five days, and you should also see your doctor if you have any other symptoms.
What to look out for in a GFP-infested home?
While most people should be safe from GFP and other mosquito-caused diseases, the first time you have contact with a mosquito you may be at increased risk of contracting it.
Your house may be infested with mosquitoes if you live in a house that is not well-ventilated or if you are exposed to indoor air.
In some cases, the virus is transmitted through contact with infected surfaces such as surfaces that are dirty or are dirty in other ways.
