Mozzies and little biting insects... they’re universally unpopular and guaranteed to put a dampener on things when you’re outside, with their dive-bombing and blood-sucking antics. So whether you’re back-packing through South America, honeymooning in Asia, out for a run or just barbecuing in your back garden with the kids - make sure you’re armed with Zap-It!
Scratching a mosquito bite may bring short-lived relief but it also floods the bitten area with histamine causing swelling, incessant urges to scratch and a risk of damaging the skin’s surface, and therefore infection.
A safe, clinically tested way to deal with pesky mozzie and other insect bites is to use Zap-It! - a small but effective piezo (meaning to squeeze or press) device that generates a harmless and mild (no stronger than a gentle pinch) low electrical impulse created by crystals (this same technology is commonly used in clocks, lighters and guitar pickups) to deliver harmless little ‘zaps’ which stops the itching and urge to scratch in minutes.
In a study carried out at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Dr Nigel Hill, the UK’s foremost specialist on biting insects, confirmed the therapeutic benefits of Zap-It! as being twofold: firstly by reducing histamine flow and therefore the itch, and secondly by stimulating the capillaries into flushing out toxins.
Zap-It! can be used as and when required by all the family, but not on babies under 4 years of age. Each Zap-It! will relieve up to 1,000 bites - enough for many years of bites or itches!
Zap-It! is available in different colours from selected health stores, pharmacies, garden centres, supermarkets and from Amazon.
