Do Electronic Mosquito Repellers Work?
There’s been a lot of debate over the years as to just how effective electronic mosquito repeller devices are at preventing mosquito bites (and therefore how effective they can be at preventing malaria).
ScienceDaily.com published an article titled ‘Electronic Mosquito Repellents Don’t Work, Say Researchers’. The article goes on to say:
“EMRs (Electronic Mosquito Repellers) should not be manufactured, advertised or used for mosquito bite and malaria prevention, as they do not do so,”
All studies “found that there was no difference in the number of mosquitoes that landed on the bare body parts of the human subjects with or without an EMR,” Enayati said. “Hence, these devices do not work in repelling mosquitoes.”
