A Light Bulb Making You Invisible to Mosquitoes

A German company has invented a lightbulb that makes people invisible to mosquitoes and other insects.  

  • New, patented technology
  • Highly efficient and proven protection against widespread and disease-carrying insects
  • Prevention of insect-borne diseases
  • Product without toxicity, chemical contamination and environmental pollution

Ah the Summer! Heat, the garden, a beautiful holiday home, the pool, barbecues and…mosquitos! Many mosquitoes! Few things destroy a wonderful summer evening as quickly as a swarm of mosquitoes.

You’ve tried spray repellents, baits, Citronella candles, Tiki torches, and maybe even yellow lightbulbs. The expected effect has not materialized yet.

Could an ordinary light bulb solve your mosquito problems?

New technology creates a light frequency within a sphere of “action” at which insects lose their ability to find their target. Most Insects navigate by sun – or moon light, so the light that they can see attracts them. This product works on the principle that everything that is in the area of influence make it invisible to mosquitoes and other insects. Since they are not attracted to this special light, the effect is similar to that of conventional insect repellents, without however killing the insects or repelling them with the use of chemical substances.

Note: ABTS Training has not seen nor tested the product but could be an interesting product that could be sold to hardware and DIY stores.
