Most travelers know that there’s an app for practically everything these days—and even they’ll be excited to learn about this free anti-mosquito app! When I travel—especially to countries where malaria is prevalent—I’m a complete nut trying to prevent mosquito bites since I don’t like to take the anti-malaria pills. Usually I lather up in bug spray, but with this Anti Mosquito app in my arsenal, things just got a lot easier.
Here’s how it works: The app emits a very unique high frequency sound (ultra sound) that the insects dislike, which keeps them away. The even better news is that the pitch of the sound is so high that most humans don’t notice anything at all.
Of course, it doesn’t guarantee 100% protection as there are “about 3,500 known mosquito species in the world and they all react slightly different to the repellent.” But, you can “use the pitch selector to find optimal repelling frequency for the mosquitoes in your region. I’m going to try today! Vogue magazine just quoted them as saying it’s “better than your mother’s homemade mosquito-bite remedies.” And it’s available for both Android and iOS. Sign me up!
