But you don’t want to be a “victim” of mosquito bites, and it sounds not very attractive to apply an oily and sticky repellent on your skin.

- Flexibility in Wearing
Except wearing on your wrist, you can wear them wherever you want, such as hook to your purse, backpack or jeans, etc.
Anti-mosquito wristbands can be used for adults and children safely. Many anti-mosquito products contain DEET, which is a widely used insecticide. Although these mosquito repellent products may have some effect, they are not eco-friendly and has a certain irritation to the skin.
As a new form of mosquito repellent devices, the mosquito repellent wristbands are free of DEET-containing and can effectively drive mosquito away. Instead of DEET, mosquito repellent wristbands use natural essential oils that have a scent that can keep the mosquitoes far away from us. So they are safer to be used on children and adults.
How to Choose Mosquito Repellent Wristbands
Firstly, Safety in Use.
Mosquito repellent wristbands or bracelets are made from high-quality silicone material with pure natural citronella essential oil, relying on the smell of the plant to avoid mosquitoes! Not chemistry! So, we should learn to select those that are confirmed to keep mosquitoes away.
If you are looking for anti-mosquito wristbands or bracelets which keep you from using fewer chemicals or none, you must pick a Deet-free, natural, and safe wristband that can be used by both adults and children.
Secondly, Variety in Styles

- If you’re going to a place which is full of mosquitoes, you may wear several wristbands in case one is not enough. Of course, you can choose various colors and styles to match your outfit. A full selection of mosquito repellent wristbands on the market can satisfy anyone with fashion sense.
- If you are going to swim or somewhere wet, you can choose a water-proof mosquito repellent wristband.
Some mosquito repellent wristbands are not waterproof and easy to lose their efficacy if you get them wet. So you should consider this when you are choosing them.
- You may want to buy those adjustable wristbands that can not only be worn on your wrist, ankle, or wrap around your ponytail, but also can be used for kids when they are attending outdoor activities.
Thirdly, Distinguish True and Fake
In the market, there are always some merchants take inferior materials to reduce the cost. Some of them even use chemical Deet to reduce the smell of the product, which has some effects against mosquitoes, but it has a degree of toxicity to people.
- Identifying the Merchants.
First of all, ensure the products are from standard manufacturers that can be confirmed by authority or quality control department, and products are with trademark Numbers.
- Checking the Outer Packing
Some of the products are packed with transparent bags and we can sure that those are fake ones. Essential oils are easy to volatilize and lose part of their function when exposed to sunlight for a long time. Therefore, approved merchants would never pack the products containing essential oils with transparent bags but opaque aluminum foil bags, to ensure the quality of products in transportation and sales.
- Checking the Printing of the Package
Approved anti-mosquito wristbands have clear printing and normal color outside the package. But for the fake, they will become out double images and abnormal colors.
- Checking products.
Approved products are always dry without any wet and oily feeling, but the fake is on the contrary.
Then, approved products have a clear and concavo-convex logo, and the fake usually have an inferior and blurry effect.
All in all, to a certain extent, mosquito repellent wristbands and bracelets can protect you against those bites from annoying mosquitoes and bugs. If you want a non-greasy product to replace these typical repellents, or you are allergic to ingredients found in typical repellents, these mosquito repellent wristbands are often the best choice for the essentials of nature and chemical-free.
But mosquito repellent wristbands also can be influenced by surroundings, such as temperature and some natural factors, so the effect will be different among people. To be sure, mosquito repellent wristbands can effectively prevent and reduce the bites from mosquitoes or other insects, but not to say that they will completely eliminate mosquito bites. People can choose reasonably.
