West Nile Virus

It’s a known fact that mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide released from your body when you exhale or perspire. They sense it from great distances.Mosquitoes can also carry West Nile Virus and other life threatening diseases.The only known protection from these diseases is to not be bitten. That's why we created the DeBug™ Insect Repellent Patch.
West Nile Virus

Biting insects are a nuisance to everyone who enjoys the great outdoors. Although often viewed as an annoyance, they now become a serious and potentially life-threatening problem with the arrival of mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile Virus. In 2003 alone, more than 9,800 human West Nile Virus cases were reported. The main source of human infection with West Nile Virus is through the bite of a mosquito. The virus gets into the mosquito's salivary glands. Then, when mosquitoes bite, the virus is injected into humans, where it causes serious illness. In fact, as of July 2005, human cases of West Nile Virus have been reported in the 47 states below.
