Even the most vigilant mothers cannot sometimes see a tiny mosquito, at the site of a bite of which both a small pimple and a large painful “bump” threaten to appear. Various protective methods are used: sprays, bracelets and folk remedies.

Specialists from The University of California, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have developed a mosquito patch that creates a protective space around a person. The duration of the patch is up to 8 hours. It is glued to clothes or a pram in which the baby lies.

The main components in the patch are citronella and eucalyptus oil. Their main advantage is the smell, which mosquitoes are afraid of, like fire.
