Not only do mosquito bites suck. And itch. Mosquitoes are notorious transmitters of a whole range of disgusting diseases. Malaria, Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus. The Kite is like a nicotine patch for keeping those little pests away. It makes you invisible to them. The other part of Kite’s mission is to help fight malaria in the developing world. Places like Africa & South America, where these viruses are killing people daily.
