Spanish textile company STINGBye based in Catalonia has come up with a shirt that repels mosquitos and other insects such as mites, ticks, lice and bedbugs, after devoting four years to research and development.
STINGBye company introduced the product to the Spain market in June, and it is available across 80 pharmacies in Spain. The company will apparently begin exporting its product in the near future.
The shirt contains Permethrin, a repellent that is added to the completed garment and holds for up to 100 washes; the insecticide has an efficiency rate of 94 percent, and the shirt has been certified by Sanitized, the world-leading Swiss Company in the antimicrobial hygiene solutions.
The repellent agent does not generate any odor, while the garment has a soft touch for children and adults and serves against all types of insects, STINGBye partner Silvia Oviedo said.
The shirt could be useful in tropical countries suffering deadly diseases affected by insects like dengue fever. Therefore, the company plans to export the product as of next September .
Insect repellent clothing has been catching on throughout the world, particularly in Asia â€“ where retailers sell cardigans, hoodies and leggings that deter mosquitos.
