When warding off mosquitoes, few products on the market offer a convenient and non-toxic solution. Mosquito netting and EPA-registered repellants may be the most prevalent commercial products for the task, but a company called ieCrowd says it is about to introduce a new approach: the Kite Mosquito Patch.

Developed at the University of California Riverside, the technology behind the Kite, which ieCrowd acquired, is said to involve non-toxic chemical compounds that neutralize a mosquito

Hmm.....Now whilst this item sounds good its essentially a patch that emits a small amount of chemicals that waft around a small region of the body where its applied.The only way I can see this having a major effect on CO2 emissions is if you applied it to .............the roof of your mouth. :laugh: :D

Pending approval from the Environmental Protection Agency, ieCrowd expects to release the Kite Patch within 10 to 14 months. He declined to say how much it will cost.

 

That usually means it's out of my price range. Neat idea, though.

Good. I'll try it. Fuck those things. Last summer I used deet spray. Nothing, deet spray with more deet 20%. Nothing. Later that season 30+ bug bits, even found one on me before I killed it.

This summer found 100% deet, it worked but burned my skin. So next is either electric repellent or this new thing.
