MOSQUITO NO BITE TM patch, due to its thiamine-based sulfur-scent, (undetectable by humans) creates an EFFECTIVE BARRIER to mosquitoes and other biting insects on all skin surface areas making you less susceptible to:
Protect yourself with Mosquito NO BITE patch TM which contains 300 mg of vitamin B1 thiamine hydrochloride, the 100% safe, natural, affordable, long-lasting and an effective biting insect repellent used the world over! MOSQUITO NO BITE TM patch has NO SIDE EFFECTS and is 100% FREE of TOXINS such as DEET. This ensures that children and adults are not harmed by chemicals that can cause:
are attracted to perspiration, warmth, body odor, carbon dioxide and
light. An outstanding benefit discovered about water-soluble thiamine
which is critical to our health, was its impressive mosquito repellent
capabilities because the anti-stress nutrient contains sulfur.
Dr. Phil Wazny, a Naturopathic Doctor in Scottsdale, Arizona who graduated magna cum laude in Biology and Biochemistry from the University of Colorado said,"A study done in the 1960s demonstrated that thiamine creates a skin odor that female mosquitoes, the biters, find repulsive but is undetectable to humans".
Thiamine can be gained in very small amounts from food sources which is sufficient for the daily function of the human body but not for mosquito protection.
By using the MOSQUITO NO BITETM patch the excess thiamine that cannot be used by the body is simply excreted through your 2.6 million sweat glands, breath, and urine thus protecting the whole body from biting insects safely and naturally.

the most dangerous creature on earth? The answer is: the mosquito.
Mosquitoes and the diseases they spread have been responsible for
killing more people than all the wars in history. New studies have found
that mosquitoes are found in nearly every country in the world.
Mosquitoes belong to the group of insects known as diptera, or flies. Mosquito means "little fly" in Spanish. Diptera means "two wings" - the characteristic that distinguishes flies from other types of insects. What distinguishes a mosquito from other types of flies are its proboscis (long tubular mouth parts for sucking up fluids) and the hair-like scales on its body. There are over 3,500 breeds of mosquitoes in the world today.
The female mosquito's life is often measured in weeks or months. Female mosquitoes can be particular with each species having its own preferences about whose blood they consume. Only female mosquitoes bite, because a blood meal is usually required for egg laying. Most mosquitoes attack birds and mammals, though some feed on the blood of reptiles and amphibians. They detect carbon dioxide exhaled by their hosts many feet away. Mosquitoes also sense body chemicals, such as the lactic acid in perspiration.
Some people are more attractive to mosquitoes than others. A person sleeping in a mosquito-infested room may wake up with dozens of mosquito bites, while the person sleeping next to them has none. Likewise, people react differently to mosquito bites, some showing few signs of being bitten, while others exhibit substantial redness, swelling and itching. This is an allergic reaction to the mosquito's saliva, the severity of which varies among individuals.
Mosquitoes can fly long distances; some more than 20 miles from the water source that produced them. But they only fly about 4 miles an hour. They generally fly into the wind to help detect host odors.
Mosquitoes look for the movement of dark objects. Once it finds you, it lands, inserts its proboscis and probes for blood vessels beneath the skin. When it finds one, it injects saliva into the wound. The saliva contains an anticoagulant that ensures a steady, smooth flow of blood. Unfortunately, the mosquito's saliva also may contain pathogens such as malaria parasites or encephalitis virus. This is how mosquitoes transmit disease.
Tens of millions of people are killed and debilitated by host of mosquito-borne diseases.
Encephalitis is inflammation and swelling of the brain, symptoms rapidly get worse over a short period of time, and people can experience seizures. Symptoms usually occur within two to ten days after being bitten by an
infected mosquito. These symptoms include high fever, stiff neck,
headache, confusion, and lethargy. Swelling of the brain, is the most
dangerous symptom, however, the threat of developing encephalitis from
mosquitoes is far greater than the threat of malaria in the United
States. Encephalitis, meningitis and other diseases can develop from the
bites of mosquitoes infected with certain viruses.
These include the viruses of West Nile-which was recently discovered in the Northeast and Southern/South West states-is endemic to the United States and increasing in incidence.
Saint Louis encephalitis - first noticed in St Louis, Missouri, the largest epidemic occurred in the mid-70s when nearly 2,000 human cases were reported,
LaCrosse (California) encephalitis - produces a relatively mild illness in humans and mammals.
Birds act as reservoirs for LaCrosse, Western equine and Eastern equine encephalitides. Outbreaks of Western equine and Eastern equine encephalitides are rare. Several different mosquito species are suspected vectors of Eastern equine encephalitis, while Culex tarsalis, known as the western encephalitis mosquito, is the vector of Western equine encephalitis. Their uncommon occurrence is fortunate because, of all encephalitides, the equine encephalitides may have the highest potential for human mortality.
is the most common California encephalitis virus in the Midwest and is spread by the primary vector (carrier) is the Ochlerotatus triseriatus formerly known as Aedes triseriatus or Tree Hole mosquito- a dark mosquito with silvery white spots on the sides of its thorax and abdomen. The virus is unique in that it primarily affects children, and because the virus can pass from a female mosquito to her offspring, mosquitoes can become infected without having to feed on an infected host. It bites humans after feeding on squirrels and chipmunks and other rodents found in wooded areas. The tree hole adult mosquitoes do not fly far from their larval development sites.
Most cases of LACV disease occur in the upper Midwestern and mid-Atlantic and southeastern states. Many people infected with LACV have no symptoms. People who become ill show symptoms of fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, and tiredness. Infected children, generally generally under the age of 16, may suffer from seizures and other nervous system complications that can persist for years. Severe LACV disease often involves encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain) and can include seizures, coma, and paralysis. In rare cases, long-term disability or death can result from LaCrosse encephalitis. There is no specific treatment for LACV. If symptoms of severe LACV disease appear, consult a healthcare provider immediately.
Asian tiger mosquitoes are distinctive, black and white mosquitoes that bite by day. They were brought to this country in 1985, hidden in shipments of tires, and have since been found in many states including Illinois. The Asian Tiger mosquito capable of carrying is LaCrosse encephalitis and West Nile viruses, though it is unclear whether the mosquito transmits these to humans.
Inland Floodwater mosquitoes are brown with pale B-shaped marks on their abdomens. They can become particularly bothersome after areas become flooded.
They are often the first mosquito noticed in spring, and later after heavy rainfall. Adults emerging together from flooded areas are often so numerous that natural controls, such as predators and parasites, are overwhelmed.
Unlike some other Aedes mosquitoes, inland floodwater mosquitoes may fly more than 10 miles from their larval development sites in search of blood meals. In Illinois, they may bite more people than any other species. They typically begin flying in late afternoon and are most active after dark, but will bite any time of day if disturbed while resting in shaded, heavily vegetated areas. Fortunately, in the United States they rarely, if ever, transmit disease, and typically die in autumn with the first hard frost.
is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is a rare illness in humans, and only a few cases are reported in the United States each year. Most cases occur in the Atlantic and Gulf Coast states. Most persons infected with EEEV have no apparent illness. Severe cases of EEE (involving encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain) begin with the sudden onset of headache, high fever, chills, and vomiting. The illness may then progress into disorientation, seizures, or coma. EEE is one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the United States with approximately 33% mortality and significant brain damage in most survivors. There is no specific treatment for EEE; care is based on symptoms. You can reduce your risk of being infected with EEEV by WEARING YOUR MOSQUITO NO BITE PATCH!!, wearing protective clothing, and staying indoors while mosquitoes are most active. If you think you or a family member may have EEE, it is important to consult your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis.
|Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is maintained in nature through a cycle between the Culiseta melanura mosquito and birds that live in freshwater swamps. Although Culiseta melanura do not bite humans, some mosquitoes will "cross bite"; i.e., bite an infected bird and then bite a human or animal (horse, emu, and other exotic birds), thereby spreading the disease.|
These mosquitoes are also known as "bridge vectors". A vector is a species that transmits a disease from one host to another. These bridge vectors may take a meal from a bird and later Image of Culiseta melanura mosquito, take another meal from a mammal. Eastern Equine Encephalitis has a 30% - 60% mortality rate once contracted. Severe damage to the central nervous system occurs in those that survive the illness. Rhode Island has confirmed five cases of EEE with two deaths in the last thirteen years. The last death was reported in 1993.
The cycles of mosquito-borne viral encephalitis and meningitis diseases are similar. Most involve various bird species that are said to be reservoirs. Once infected by a mosquito bite, the reservoir species are usually not seriously affected. Horses and humans are generally thought of as "dead-end" hosts because they do not produce enough virus to infect mosquitoes.
is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. Most cases of SLEV disease have occurred in eastern and central states. Most persons infected with SLEV have no apparent illness. Initial symptoms of those who become ill include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and tiredness. Severe neuroinvasive disease (often involving encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain) occurs more commonly in older adults. In rare cases, long-term disability or death can result. There is o specific treatment for SLEV infection; care is based on symptoms. You can reduce your risk of being infected with SLEV by WEARING YOUR MOSQUITO NO BITE PATCH!!, wearing light-colored protective clothing and staying indoors while mosquitoes are most active. If you think you or a family member may have SLEV neuroinvasive disease, it is important to consult your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis.
is transmitted predominantly by Culex mosquitoes. Culex are medium- sized mosquitoes that are brown with whitish markings on the abdomen. These include the house mosquitoes
( C. quinquefasciatus and C. pipiens )
That develop in urban areas and the western encephalitis mosquito (C. tarsalis) more commonly found in rural areas. They typically bite at dusk and after dark. By day they rest in and around structures and vegetation. Culex lay "rafts" of eggs on still water in a variety of natural and man-made containers, including tree holes, ditches, sewage and septic system water, catch basins (storm rains), non-chlorinated swimming and wading pools, decorativeponds, bird baths, flower pots, buckets,clogged gutters, abandoned tires, and water-retaining junk and debris of all sorts. Therefore, every effort should be made to empty water out of them on a weekly basis. Eggs cannot develop in running water and water that is present less than a week.
Adult Culex mosquitoes do not fly far from where they develop as larvae. And unlike other mosquitoes that die with the coming of the first hard frost in autumn, the house mosquito can "over-winter" in protected places like sewers, crawlspaces and basements. In recent years, the West Nile virus has been the most common disease vectored (transmitted) by mosquitoes, other biting flies and ticks. West Nile virus arrived in the United States in 1999. In 2002, Illinois led the nation in West Nile disease cases with 884 and 67 deaths.
Like all encephalitis producing viruses, West Nile virus survives in birds and/or mammals, using them as reservoirs. Most birds and mammals survive infection. About 80 percent of humans develop no symptoms after being infected with the virus, developing at least a temporary immunity. Persons older than 50 years of age, and those with compromised immune systems, are much more likely to develop West Nile fever symptoms include fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and rash, which are mild symptoms to severe symptoms that include neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, tremor, coma, vision loss, and paralysis. These severe symptoms could last weeks, could be permanent or could evolve into being life-threatening nervous system complications such as meningitis or encephalitis. The onset of symptoms usually begins three to 14 days after a mosquito bite.
Compare the West Nile virus to St Louis encephalitis, the West Nile Virus has a greater potential for producing epidemics.
is one of the most common diseases that some mosquitoes carry. Malaria is caused by a blood-borne parasite that infects and then destroys red blood cells. It is transmitted from person to person by the bite of an Anopheles mosquito. Anopheles are present in almost all countries in the tropics and subtropics. Approximately 300 - 500 million cases of malaria occur each year and more than 1 million people die of malaria according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
is a disease caused by the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito. 5% of people who get yellow fever die. Symptoms include high temperature (fever), chills, headache, backache, nausea and vomiting, jaundice and bleeding. More serious cases may affect the blood, liver and kidneys. There is no specific treatment for yellow fever, other than to relieve the symptoms. Once a person has had yellow fever, they are immune to further infection. It does not occur in the U.S. but in parts of Africa and South America.
is primarily a disease of the tropics that is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a day-biting mosquito that prefers to feed on humans. It is also transmitted by the Aedes albopictus (also called the "tiger mosquito"). Those infected with dengue can suffer from a spectrum of illnesses ranging from a viral flu to severe and fatal hemorrhagic fever (DHF). The dengue virus is passed back and forth between mosquitoes and humans and causes a extraordinarily painful ailment that exists in four known strains. Dengue is especially dangerous to children, who generally have one infection, but if bitten again can get a more serious infection that can lead to dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). DHF causes sever internal bleeding, shock,and circulatory collapse, and is usually fatal to children.
Dengue is increasingly becoming a plague of global proportions and may soon eclipse malaria as the most significant mosquito-borne viral disease affecting humans.
Dengue can cause fever, chills, headache, pain upon moving the eyes, low backache and skeletal pain. Some of the symptoms of dengue include bleeding (from the nose, mouth, and gums), excessive thirst and difficulty in breathing. Dengue is now the leading cause of acute febrile illness. A lot of these symptoms also mirror another deadly virus - the Ebola virus. Some 250 million people (2/5 of the world's population) are now at risk from dengue. WHO estimates that there may be 50 million cases of dengue infection worldwide ever year. The best way to reduce your risk of infection with mosquito-borne viruses is to prevent mosquito bites. Wear light colored long sleeves, long pants and socks or even stay indoors while mosquitoes are most active.

Scientists think they may have documented the first case of a sexually transmitted insect-borne disease, according to a study in Emerging Infectious Diseases. Brian Foy, a vector biologist at Colorado State University who traveled to Senegal, was bitten by a mosquito and subsequently developed the Zika virus, which causes fatigue and joint pains.
When Foy returned to the U.S. and had sex with his wife, he unknowingly transmitted the disease to her. But phew: New York Magazine informs us that everything is just fine: "Everyone in this story is fine. The insect-borne illness in question has worn off, even if the rest of us come down with a case of the willies."
