A unique, safe and natural way to repel mosquitoes, gnats and flies.
There are no chemicals, pesticides or insecticides in the patch. It contains 300 mg. of Vitamin Thiamin B1. Our bodies generally absorb between 50 mg to 75 mg of Vitamin B1. The excess is displaced through our sweat glands. Research has shown that mosquitoes, gnats and flies do not like the smell of Vitamin B1 excreted through the sweat glands.
( INSECT REPELLANT - Studies suggest that taking large doses of thiamine is effective in reducing mosquito bites. This safe vitamin apparently produces a skin odor that is not detectable by humans, but is disagreeable to pregnant mosquitoes (Pediatric Clinics of North America, 16:191, 1969). You or I would not notice the smell but the insects apparently do. It seems to be especially effective for hypersensitive allergic individuals. While no repellent is always 100% effective, we feel the AgraCo Technologies patch is a safe alternative to messy oils and harsh chemical spray repellents.
Ease of Use- Thiamine taken orally takes about 2 weeks before the odor fully saturates the skin. The AgraCo Mosquito Patch works within 2-3 hours after applying the patch to the skin.
