Do you get bitten by mosquitos at home or abroad? I know that some of you get bitten and more of you are left alone, it isn’t fair. Luckily there is help, Incognito Insect Repellent is a clinically proven repellent that can protect you. And a Wexford woman from Enniscorthy is co-founder of the brand, well done to her on her dedication to finding a natural and deet free solution for this problem, and at the same time a product that doesn’t cause harm to the environment.
I don’t know why 20% of people are irresistible to mosquitos, but here are some theories: It could be your blood type; it seems they prefer type O and type AB. They like sweat as they are attracted to compounds like ammonia and lactic acid in sweat. They seem to like beer drinkers and unfortunately, they are drawn like magnets to pregnant women. Several customers have told me about how they were the only one in a large group to have gotten bitten, so some of these theories could be correct!
Mosquito bites are very itchy and you have to be careful of infection so you need to prevent the bite as best you can in the first place. Incognito Insect Repellent is tested to be 100% effective against mosquito bites (clinically tested to provide 100% protection against Aedes aegypti – Zika carrying and Anopheles gambiae – malaria carrying mosquitoes). It needs to be reapplied every four hours for full protection. Incognito is certified as 100% natural and can be used by all the family including young babies from 6 months onwards. It protects from midges, sand flies, and horseflies. It also protects against ticks, making it the perfect choice for anyone spending time in wooded areas.
If you forget to use the spray or are unfortunate enough to get bitten then Zap-Ease Instant Bite Relief is an effective and harmless way of stopping the itch. Click the Zap-Ease several times around the area of the bite to reduce the urge to scratch. The toxicity of the mosquito bite becomes neutralised, with no harmful effect on the surrounding skin, thus stopping the inflammation and unsightly swelling. It will work for up to 1,000 bites, that’s fantastic.
Stay safe from insect bites this year.
