Mosquitoes and other biting insects are nothing but a pain, quite literally. It’s well worth having a Zap It mosquito bite zapper to hand for instant insect bite relief. They are small, portable devices that give you instant relief from the itching of an insect bite.
Let’s take a look at what the Zap It is and how it works.
What is Zap It?
This tiny device is very easy to carry around with you for insect bite relief when you need it. It’s a small but effective piezo (meaning to squeeze or press) device that generates a harmless and mild low electrical impulse created by crystals. This same technology is commonly used in clocks, lighters and guitar pickups.
You can purchase Zap It on Amazon.
How does Zap It work?
It delivers harmless little ‘zaps’ which stop the itching and urge to scratch in minutes. It sounds a little scary but really is no stronger than a gentle pinch when you use it.
When you get bitten, you of course get the urge to scratch the bite. Unfortunately when you scratch a bite, the area gets flooded with histamine. This causes swelling, incessant urges to scratch and a risk of damaging the skin’s surface, which could lead to infection.
Zap It was tested 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, it reduces histamine flow and therefore the itch. Secondly it stimulates the capillaries into flushing out toxins.
Insect bite relief on the go
This tiny and portable device clips on to your keys or your bag so you have it with you at all times. There are no chemicals used, and no batteries.
It can be used as and when required by all the family for mosquito bite relief, but not on babies under 4 years of age.
The device works on all sorts of insect bites including carpet beetle bites.
Each Zap It provides bite relief for up to 1000 bites – enough for many years of bites or itches!
To keep biting insects away in the first place, add some citronella candles to your garden. They are an essential for any summer garden party planning, and will help keep those irritating midges away from your summer cocktails too.
Then if you do happen to get bitten, have a Zap It on hand to deal with the pain and irritation quickly, and with no chemicals.
Where To Buy Zap It
The mosquito bite zapper is available online from Amazon. Zap It is also available from selected health stores, pharmacies, garden centres, all Asda shops and Superdrug.
