Lol. This was six months ago… and Fighter’s biggest enemy is still the mosquitos. T___________T
For some reason, mosquitoes are a terrible hazard in our apartment! Every single time it rains, the next day swarms of mosquitos invade our house and ONLY BITE ME AND FIGHTER WTF.
I get so mad whenever Fighter gets bitten cos one mosquito bite is like the entire width of his arm or leg and it’s just pitiful. T___T
AND LOOK AT ME FOOT. BITTEN UNTIL GOT SCARS.
Fatty kena dengue before and I’m terrified Fighter gets it. Seriously what chances does a baby have against dengue!?!
I’ve checked our house and balcony over and over and still cannot figure out where their stupid larvae is. There’s regular fogging but still the mosquitoes don’t die. Used all sorts of things from electric mosquito pellets, mosquito coils, electric mosquito traps, citronella oil burners, and insect sprays but while some are effective, they’re also very unhealthy, especially for Fighter’s baby lungs.
(Once I went crazy and lit mosquito coils all over the house and it worked! But then later found out it’s just bad for us humans. We ended up opening all the windows to get the smoke out. Then mosquitos came in again FOL.)
I tried mosquito patches too which are effective cos the smell is very strong and concentrated locally but always worried if the chemical smell was good for Fighter. So I ended up sticking them on furniture near him instead which can be inconvenient when we move him.
Saw this in the pharmacy and decided that to give it a try. Tiger Balm is a reputable brand plus it uses Citronella oil which is natural and obviously safe. ^^
I know Citronella oil works but I find it messy so I like that this comes in a clean, no fuss form. No DEET or any other harmful chemicals used.
Inside the box are sealed strips like this one.
Behind is an adhesive for easy sticking. The backing comes in two pieces for easy removal.
Then just stick on clothes! I put it on Fighter’s middle so there’s equal coverage top and bottom hahaha.
For babies, it’s enough to use one, but for adults two is recommended.
Fighter’s like “No moar moskeetos?”
