Insect Infestation on Humans, Animals and Plant Life:
There are currently only a few US Food and Drug Administration approved treatments available for humans, animals and plant life, so special care needs to be taken so a resistance does not form to all US approved products available on the market.
Some infections may be common in Africa and South America, however a particular infection applying to certain hosts out of 120,000 different types of flying insect species may be reportedly moving northward one way, or another, if not already there?

 
Fly Bites on Scalp, etc. caused by fungal infection:      
● Humans:*/**/***/****
   Note: people with a history of athlete’s foot and/or nail fungal infections may be more susceptible, as well as, those who have
   had yeast infections, and hair loss?
See "Related links" listed below for alternatives.
Nizoral® A-D with Ketoconazole Shampoo 1% (non-prescription/read instructions). Use every four days for eight weeks.
● Nizoral® A-D with Ketoconazole Shampoo 2% (prescription/read instructions). Use every four days for four weeks.
Ritonavir®.
   Note 1: In many cases mites are already resistant to some insecticides.
   Note 2: Products with other active ingredient besides what is found in Nizoral® or Ritonavir® may not be effective?
   Note 3: It could take up to two years to be effective in some individuals who have a fungal infection deep inside the scalp.
   Note 4: Skin biopsy and/or hair follicle culture may be required.
   Note 5: Blood test may be required to search for fungal infection, if test exist.
   Note 6: Processed foods, overcooked foods and foods grown with fertilizers/pesticides versus organic foods may contain
               less borax, boron, etc. that may lead to skin problems among other health issues. Related link.
          
Insect Infestations on the Outside of Body and/or underneath the Skin:
● Humans:**/***/****
See "Related links" listed below for alternatives.
   Note 1: In many cases mites are already resistant to some insecticides.
 
 Note 2: Some forms of acne on face and other parts of the body can possibly be a parasitic infection.
● For more severe cases of folliculitis where insects have laid eggs around the base of hair follicles or parasitic infections
   found in openings of the scalp caused by fly bites, wounds, open sores caused by picking at acne, or from excessive
   scratching that last longer than seven (7) days the following may be recommended by a licensed pharmacist, or by a
   licensed physician:
Permethrin Cream Rinse (non-prescription/may be toxic/read instructions) or see the following prescription medication
   examples listed below.
   Note: This product is recommended for head lice and should not be used for more severe insect infestations.
Permethrin Cream 5% 60g (prescription/may be toxic/read instructions). Permethrin is a natural insecticide made from
   chrysanthemum flowers.
   Note: Aggressive full body treatment(s) may be recommended to avoid resistance.

   event pruritus occurs from the use of an insecticide.
   Note: Neem leaf alcohol extract tincture can be applied to areas were itchy skin is caused by infestation.
Note: Processed foods, overcooked foods and foods grown with fertilizers/pesticides versus organic foods may contain
less borax, boron, etc. that may lead to skin problems among other health issues. Related link.
  
● Animals/pets:***
● Use similar product(s) listed above that are made specifically for animals may apply:
See "Related links" listed below for alternatives. May not be suitable for use with some animals.

*Fungal infections can sometimes create a fruity odor that may attract flies that bite. Hair shampoos and conditioners that
 contain fruit products can also contribute to fly bites.
  
**A secondary parasitic infection may occur (for example: exposure to flies found commonly in convalescent hospitals, etc.)
  requiring a licensed physician's help, or a specialist such as: a dermatologist and/or a trichologist, and maybe even an
  endocrinologist, and/or an immunologist may be required.
  Note: Many people and physicians have a phobia when it comes to the subject of insects, and/or a lack of knowledge
  in how to treat insect infestations, or they may accuse an individual(s) of suffering from a mental disorder called
  delusional parasitosis, or treat the person as if they have a disorder whereas the individual is imagining they
  have insects crawling on them, or is imagining they have a parasitic infestation of some kind.
  
***Tabūla Mentis surmises fungal and maybe even yeast infections could originate from open cuts/wounds, animal, or possibly
    even insect bites exposed to, or infected with a pathogen via direct contact with blood. Conversely, this may also mean it
    might be possible to develop a medication or vaccine to treat, or even cure this disease(s).
    Note: Mosquitoes are not attracted as much to some people, nor are some people susceptible to insect bites, athlete’s foot,
    nail fungal infections, yeast infections, and/or head lice infestations, etc. possibly due to the reasons listed directly above, or
    due to a natural resistance within an individual's DNA, etc..
  
****Recommendations for scalp insect infestations when using tea tree oil, neem oil or other products (etc.) that may create an
     allergic reaction:

     1: Do not pick at or open wounds, sores, insect bite areas, pimples, scabs on scalp, scratch or rub scalp excessively
         because doing so may cause dermatitis or create new openings for insects to lay eggs. In folliculitis insects have laid
         eggs around the base of hair follicles.
     2: When generously applied with oil carrier to the skin to suffocate the infestation and to stop their reproductive cycles;
         tea tree oil, neem oil and tincture should show drastic improvements within three (3) weeks.

Neem/Tea Tree Products - Miscellaneous
Neem Oil (or Tea Tree Oil):

Apply to bumps caused by fly bites where there may be possible infestations inside the scalp, skin, etc. to chase the parasites away. Use externally directly on body and can be mixed with other body products (soaps, shampoos, etc.).
Note 1: Neem oil (non-toxic in low concentrations) is a natural insecticide that interrupts the reproduction cycles causing insects to become infertile unable to reproduce over a period of time from days to weeks depending on the severity of infestation and the amount of neem oil used.
Note 2: Neem oil (non-toxic in low concentrations) is useful in treating nail fungal infections (along with cleaning the infected areas first with full strength bleach) among other aliments. Read instructions first prior to use or consult with a professional who specializes in that field of expertise. Not recommended for use exceeding two (2) weeks. Not to be used full strength. Needs to be mixed with other ingredients (carriers) so neem oil will be absorbed through the skin. Read links listed on this webpage for carrier ingredients that can be used in conjunction with neem oil.
Note 3: Petroleum can be used instead of neem oil. Petroleum jelly fumes (non-toxic in low concentrations for most humans) and its ability to suffocate may chase away the infestation, and provide a barrier from insects reentering infected area(s), however insects may continue to lay new eggs from within before leaving as larvae, or as a full grown wing, or wingless insect.

  
Neem Leaf Alcohol Extract Tincture:

Neem tincture can be used internally along with neem oil or with other natural home remedies. Not recommended for use exceeding ten (10) weeks. Use ten (10) drops twice a day for the average size person. If any side effects occur, stop usage. Use as directed.
Note 1: Neem Oil or Petroleum jelly for animals (cats for example): Place on infected areas behind neck and on lower back near tail where bumps may be located.
Note 2: Neem oil (non-toxic in low concentrations) will cause insects to become infertile unable to reproduce over a period of time. Not recommended for use exceeding two (2) weeks. Not to be used full strength. Needs to be mixed with other ingredients (carriers) so neem oil will be absorbed through the skin. Read links listed below for ingredients that can be used in conjunction with neem oil.
