FIELD TEST Actual Field Test: “My wife and I accompanied several other volunteer doctors, nurses, teachers and carpenters with the STEMM (Sioux land Tanzania Education and Medical Ministry) on a 2 ½ week mission to Tanzania, Africa to do a variety of works from performing surgery to building bridges. Because we were in a heavily mosquito infested area and in early rainy season, protection was advised. The Bug Patch was given to the entire team. One member, an RN with a history of frequent mosquito bites experienced 8 bites the first day but with increased patches from 1 to 3 patches daily, no further bites occurred. All other members of the team, including myself were mosquitoes bite-free with one patch every 24 to 36 hours. We found the patch to be convenient and without side effects, it held up well through hot weather and showering. It also allowed us sufficient protection that we did not need to use the mosquito netting at night. The other members of the team and I would highly recommend Bug Patch in any degree of mosquito exposure”.
