Bandito, The Wearable Mosquito Blocker, Raised Almost a Quarter Million US Dollars in Crowdfunding

Summer is an exciting season. During the hottest months, most people plan getaways in nature.  Nobody wants their planned and well-deserved vacations to be disturbed by anything. From mountain vacations through seaside getaways, there is one thing that is can ruin your good time – the annoying mosquitoes.

There are many ways to keep mosquitoes away – from arranging bouquets of herbs and flowers that repel mosquitoes to body spray repellents, we are sure that you’ve tried it all. But now there is a great solution that ends the war against mosquitoes – a crowdfunded mosquito blocker that you can wear on your wrist.

Bandito is the ultimate portable shield that protects you from mosquitoes. The wristband uses a combination of the most powerful non-toxic scents and sonic sounds, becoming the most convenient mosquito blocker that you can find on the market.

The non-toxic scent strips are in a combination of three main scents – citronella, peppermint, and lemongrass. What is more interesting here are the sonic sounds. Bandito emits a sound that is extremely repelling to mosquitoes. The sound is a faint buzzing that is hardly heard by humans but makes mosquitoes cringe.

The scents and the battery of Bandito need to be refilled, but one refill lasts for a season. In a refill, you will receive 12 vacuum sealed scent strips that will last up to three months and a battery that lasts for about 500 hours, which makes 5.5 hours a day for 90 days.

A Crowdfunding Success Story

Bandito launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo with a fixed goal of $25,000 USD. The campaign was 903% overfunded as it raised $225,728 USD by 3053 backers. The estimated delivery date for the product is in August 2018.
