Australia’s iconic summer means Aussies are ready to enjoy the outdoors, but the hot weather also means the insects are ready to gate crash.
A new and world first, Hovex Vaporgard Outdoor Fly & Mosquito Shield uses vapour active technology to provide invisible and odourless protection against flies and mosquitos for up to six hours. This simple, no mess solution for entertaining outdoors will leave your guests scratching their heads (and not because they’ve been bitten by mosquitoes!) wondering how you managed to keep the insects at bay.
This highly effective product forms a ‘no fly zone’. Simply spray the surface around the outdoor area you want to protect to create a vertical barrier around your outdoor activities.
Pascoe’s Head of Research & Development, Dr. Andrew Scrivener said, “Hovex Vaprogard Outdoor Fly & Mosquito Shield has been tested under the harshest Australian conditions.
“We’ve trialled Vaporgard against mosquitoes in Humpty Doo, in the Northern Territory and conducted fly trials on a dairy farm in Bell, rural Queensland.
“Our field tests returned some remarkable results showing 96% repellency on nonabsorbent surfaces and 80% repellency on absorbent surfaces for mosquitos and 81% repellency on non-absorbent surfaces and 79% repellency on absorbent surfaces for flies.”
“The unique vapour-active ingredient Transfluthrin evaporates at a controlled rate from the surface into the air, providing at least six hours’ continuous protection,” Dr. Andrew Scrivener explained.
Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying; they can pass on serious diseases through mosquito bites. Some of these include Murray Valley Encephalitis, Ross River Fever, Barmah Forest Virus and Dengue Fever.
Hovex Vaporgard Outdoor Fly & Mosquito Shield is a superior alternative to existing area repellents including citronella candles, lanterns and torches because it’s a direct spray aerosol providing up to six-hours’ protection with one application. Odourless and invisible, it can also be sprayed before commencing outdoor activities, without the need spray directly on the skin or around food.
Bryce Peters, Urban Entomologist at the University of Technology Sydney, has conducted research on vapour active molecules such as Transfluthrin.
“These molecules protect people against flying insects. We have tested this concept in extremely challenging environments and found it to be effective.”
Hovex Vapogard Outdoor Fly & Mosquito Shield can be purchased exclusively at Bunnings and retails for $9.58.
