What is a mosquito patch?
Mosquito repellent patches are stick-on bandages that are treated with a product or products that help to keep mosquitoes at bay. Some mosquito patches repel not just mosquitoes, but also and other insects that bite. The patch has a backing that peels to reveal a sticky surface. The product can either be applied directly on the skin or be stuck to a surface close to the place where the person is, ex. the wall or the bed frame. Most of the mosquito patches that are sold commercially offers protection for as long as 36 hours.
These insect repellents are sold in boxes and each box would contain at least 2 – 3 patches in it and each of the patches will be individually sealed for user’s convenience. Experts recommend one patch for adults and half a patch for children below 8.
Why do we recommend it?
- It offers awesome protection outdoors
- A mosquito patch is perfect for the place that is infested with lots of mosquitoes and other insects that bite.
- A mosquito patch is the perfect alternative for places that cannot hold electronic insect repellents.
- Most repellent sticks and creams contain DEET that is not a safe ingredient, so a mosquito patch is a safer alternative.
- Most patches contain natural citronella oil that is a natural mosquito repellent
