Yes it does! In fact, BiteRepel was created specifically for GMM because nothing available on the market worked.

What is a Genetically Modified Mosquito
OX513A is a genetically engineered mosquito strain developed by Oxitec that is designed to reduce the transmission of vector-borne diseases. OX513A mosquitoes are genetically modified to produce offspring that die before adulthood. The mosquitoes are made dependent on tetracycline, and if they don't have access to it, they die. When male OX513A mosquitoes mate with wild females, over 95% of their offspring express the lethality trait.

Home Made Repellents

These are abundant and many have created their own versions. Some work and some don't. Everything comes down to a science! Creating the perfect repellent takes time and a lot of trials. Our blood type also plays a big factor. Some of the home-made repellents can be toxic to children or pets also, so you have to be extremely careful in creating your own.

How Do I Use BiteRepel Outdoors

BiteRepel Outdoors comes in a 500ml bottle. This concentrated formula works great as-is, however, should you wish to dilute it, you may do so by adding upto a maximum 1 litre of water to 500ml of product - Thus yielding 1.5 litres of product.

 

Directions: Pour contents into diffuser and leave product on for 30 min before sitting outside.

 

For severe mosquito infestation, contents may be poured into a small pot and left outside all day. The sun’s heat will naturally vaporize the product to provide protection.

What is the Best Mosquito Repellent that Actually Works?

The goto product used to be Deet, Citronella, Picaridin etc. Times have changed and our thinking should also refect the times.

Extensive research into various insect and bug repellent products has revealed a glaring truth: traditional "repellents" simply don't cut it against the latest strains of mosquitoes. These outdated solutions have failed to keep pace with mosquito evolution.
