Mosquitno – All Natural Mosquito Repellent Wristbands and Stickers

Mosquitno All Natural Mosquito Repellent

Lets face it, as much fun as it is to be outdoors hiking, fishing, gardening, or playing in the back yard, nothing can spoil the fun faster than annoying, biting mosquitoes, flies, gnats or no-see-ums.

Like many avid hikers I have my own solution for managing with biting bugs, typically consisting of a headnet and full length lightweight clothing pre-treated with insect repellent. That works extremely well for me, but as a system it falls apart as soon as I go anywhere with my children.

I’m personally not comfortable putting pesticides such as N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide (better know as DEET) on my skin and especially not my children’s, so I’m always on the lookout for all natural mosquito repellents that are also kid friendly.

Mosquitno Wrist BandZzz and SpotZzz Stickers

Sprays and lotions, even all natural ones, can sometimes feel sticky and uncomfortable. They’re a nuisance to put on and can even damage clothing.

Mosquitno products take an entirely different approach than sprays and lotions. They’ve very cleverly created products infused with natural Citronella oil, one of nature’s most effective and all natural mosquito repellent, that can be conveniently worn as wrist bands or reusable stickers.

Kid Cool Factor

In addition to bug sprays being sticky and annoying, you very quickly discover as a parent that your children hate anything to do with sprays that smell or sting. This makes an already awkward process into a completely miserable one. That’s not the case with Mosquitno products.

Upon breaking out the Mosquitno products in front of my kids, they were immediately excited to put on a cool looking rubber (silicone) wrist BandZzz as well as putting some fun patterned SpotZzz stickers on their clothes. Suddenly, protecting my kids from biting insects got a whole lot easier for mom and dad – yay!

The wrist bands look and feel like any other silicone bracelet that you’ve ever worn with the exception of a strong Citronella smell. To appeal even more to children, the wrist bands have a cool slogan embedded on them saying “mosquitos don’t bite me please” and also come in several fun colors. Unfortunately the tie-die colored wrist band was the most popular, but we only had one.

However, the wrist bands will provide bug protection for up to six days and come in re-sealable plastic pouches to keep them from drying out – so Jack and Maggie took turns each day wearing the tie-die one.

Long Lasting Protection

The SpotZzz stickers are very cool looking and add an extra level of protection around the body. They come in an assortment of bright colors, patterns, and logos that will appeal to both boys and girls. These stickers don’t last quite as long as the wrist bands do, three days vs. six days, but they are reusable.

My daughter put her SpotZzz stickers in the same pouch as her wrist band each evening so that she could use them again. Eventually, after three or four days, the stickers lost their stickiness and she chose new ones.

Conclusion

I’m impressed with the quality and creativity that went into producing the Mosquitno products. Taking on the challenge of an all natural mosquito reppelent that is also kid friendly is no small feat. Thankfully they pulled it off. Oh, and most importantly, the products work!

My family and I tested the Mosquitno products in and around the Traverse City area of Michigan for an entire week. We played outside, went to the lakes, and kayaked down rivers where the flies, mosquitos and no-see-ums are out in force. Our wrist bands and some strategically placed stickers (under the rim of our baseball caps) kept the nasty bugs out of our faces and off our skin just as well as sprays.

I’m sold on these neat little wrist bands and stickers and my kids absolutely love them. If you have small kids that love to be outdoors as much as mine do, or even if you don’t have children, be sure to check out the Mosquitno products for your next adventure.

    I absolutely detest mosquito repellent, and this looks like it just might be the perfect solution! Thanks for passing it on!

    • I’m right there with ya! Add to that I burn in the sun pretty easily which means I have to put sunscreen on too – and you get the picture. These won’t prevent sunburn but they will make you a lot less sticky and nasty feeling than sprays and lotions.

  • Sandee Weiner

    Great idea! Tnx for sharing!

  • Awesome!

    • Have you tried any of these or similar?

      • replicant

        super stoked to try these out. do you know of anything similar for dogs? maybe a dog tag to put on their collar? I already have a tick collar on my shepherd along with this regular collar (would love a company that put out similar products that were just dog tags to go on a single collar)

        • I don’t know that my own dog, a chocolate lab, is even bothered by mosquitoes? I’m not sure that a tag on her collar would do very much, but I can see where you’re coming from. I’m also not that convinced that a tick collar will do much to stop ticks. I use a combination of an annual vaccine shots and daily inspections for ticks for my dog and still I find them every now and then. They get so deep in under her coat that I can’t imagine a collar solution, no matter how potent, would bother a tick at all.

          Have you had much success with the tick collar? Were ticks and issue before you started using one? There’s probably something DIY’ish you could do with the rubber wrist bands, like cut them up, to get them to fit onto a collar.

          I’ll fire this question off to the manufacturer and see what they say.

    Use your hands to apply the repellent to your face, keeping away from your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Avoid getting it into any open sores, wounds or cuts. Wash hands with soap and water after applying.
