Hi Michelle. Its all about prevention unfortunately. Keep a net, regularly "Fleet" (insecticide) your room and get fly screens. I also wore a combined sunscreen and insect repellant. Even though its really really really hot, try and get clothes that cover legs/feet as much as possible.
Where in Nigeria are you moving to? I spent a lot of time in Port Harcourt and Lagos, and a little bit of time in Abuja.

I would get him vacinated for malaria and make sure you can get his other shots over there too. To nigeria, that is such a big move. I hope all the best for you and your family.
