Ma-Kite-Ya Mosquito Repellent Spray can be used to cover the exposed skin and clothing. Do not use under clothing. It is more suitable to use it on clothes for the young children. It can be applied (2-3) times per day. It can protect from the mosquitoes approximately (4-8) hours. It contains DEET which does not kill the mosquitoes but it works by making it hard for these biting mosquitoes to smell us. Do not apply near eyes, nostrils and mouth. Do not apply over cuts, wounds, or irritated skin.
