Nanolabel Anti-Mosquito Technology Turns Clothing into Insect Repellant

Being outside in the summertime is fun until the pesky bugs start to come out in droves; luckily however, Nanolabel Anti-Mosquito technology is being developed to make clothing bug-resistant.

While it is still in the early phases, the Portuguese company has developed a textile coating process referred to as NANOMOSKI. The company uses silicon dioxide, a non-toxic element similar to sand, and deposits it into the fabric. These particles are extremely unpopular with the blood-sucking pests that buzz around in the warm weather months and have been proven to repel the bugs and prevent them from biting.

This process, once fully integrated into clothing manufacturing, could significantly reduce the spread of malaria or at very least, keep those annoying insects from ruining one's time outdoors. Stats for Bug-Be-Gone Garments Trending: Older & Mild
