The “Kite” patch is a breakthrough approach to combating mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases.

Kite is a small, powerful patch that disperses non-toxic compounds that make humans invisible to mosquitoes.

Kite is designed to provide individuals with up to 48 hours of protection from mosquitoes by blocking their human-hunting sensors.

The Kite™ Mosquito Patch is an innovative, powerful and surprisingly small sticker that protects humans from mosquitoes.

We are currently in the midst of our crowdfunding campaign to fund our first batch of Kite™ Mosquito Patches, which will be used to provide over 1,000,000 hours of protection for communities in Uganda and test our product in the most important proving ground there is.
