The Kite Mosquito Patch

Approximately 2 min.

Dr. Anandasankar Ray and his team from the University of California, Riverside, has developed the Kite Patch, a small patch worn on clothing to protect against mosquitos.  The patch blocks the mosquitoes’ ability to track and detect humans for up to 48 hours.  It should be for sale in 2017.

All Kite products are free from DEET or any other potentially harmful or toxic chemicals.  The company is committed to replacing outdated and potentially unhealthy repellents that have dominated the market for decades.

The patch could help protect against malaria, West Nile, Dengue fever, and other mosquito-borne diseases.  Journal article.  One person’s review.
