Diseases like malaria, dengue, Japanese encephalitis, scrub typhus, and leishmaniasis have their own distributions. Where these vector‐borne pathogens occur, extra care must be taken to avoid bites. In the worst areas, exposure to biting insects, ticks, or mites for even a single day can result in serious, life‐threatening disease.
