NOBITE is an insect protection agent that consists of a long-lasting repellent for the skin that is suited for use in the tropics and an impregnation agent for clothing. Since 40% of mosquito bites occur through clothing, the impregnation of clothing is recommended. The impregnation of clothing lasts for up to one month and is twice as effective by itself as the repellent for the skin. If you combine both measures, the number of bites drops to an extremely low level (from around 2200 bites without protection to 1.5 bites). A reduction in the number of mosquito bites through NOBITE means a decreased risk of contracting such infections as malaria, dengue fever and the Zika virus. Furthermore, the impregnation of clothing provides the best possible protection against ticks: should a tick come into contact with impregnated clothing, it will fall off.
The spread of tropical illnesses when travelling, on holiday or on safari
The combination of a long-lasting repellent for the skin and an impregnation agent for clothing is recommended by travel medicine advice centres as a way of protecting against vector-borne diseases (e.g. malaria, dengue fever and the Zika virus). The combination of protection for skin and clothing also works against various mosquitoes and ticks at our latitudes.
For the skin
NOBITE EXTREME contains highly active agents in order to guarantee long-lasting protection for the skin. NOBITE EXTREME provides a broad range of effectiveness against mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and many other insects through the two active ingredients of DEET and Icaridin.
For the clothing
NOBITE TEXTILE is THE insect repellent for the impregnation of clothing, since 40% of mosquito bites are suffered through clothing. Impregnation lasts for one month as long as clothing is not washed.
NOBITE tested against ticks
NOBITE TEXTILE is particularly effective against ticks thanks to its active ingredient permethrin. Ticks spread the illnesses TBE and Lyme disease. A tick will search for a warm place for several hours before biting. However, when a tick comes into contact with permethrin for at least 15 seconds, it is knocked-out and can no longer bite.
Ticks sit on top of grass or in long grass. Impregnated shoes and socks reduce the risk of being bitten by 74 times.
