01: Choose the Right Patch

Consider patch size, duration of protection, and ingredients. Larger patches work better outdoors while small patches suit discrete indoor use. 24-36 hour duration patches are ideal for long days outside. Ensure you are not allergic to any botanical oils in the patches.

02: Where to Apply

Apply mosquito patches directly on exposed skin like arms, ankles, and neck for portable protection. Or clip on patches to clothing when you’ll be mostly dressed. Use extra patches on areas mosquitoes often bite like the wrists and behind knees.


03: Reapply as Needed

Reapply patches daily or when protection time expires. Reapply after getting wet from swimming or rain. Bring extras when spending extended time outdoors or traveling. It’s better to reapply more frequently than assume a patch is still working.

04: Combine Approaches

Use patches along with protective clothing, screened spaces, fans or citronella candles outdoors. Eliminate standing water sources around your home where mosquitoes breed. Stay indoors during peak mosquito times like dawn and dusk.

05: Consistent Patch Use Means Less Mosquito Worries

Read directions carefully and apply mosquito repellent patches correctly for reliable protection. Combine with other precautions for fullest defense against mosquitoes and the diseases they may carry.
