Babies and mosquitoes .. You can imagine what I am going to talk about . When I came to Mumbai and shifted to a new flat , we faced the problem of mosquitoes a lot. My baby was 4 months old then . Everyday I felt guilty when I see red spots /mosquito bites on her body and face though she slept in a netted cradle. I never understood how mosquitoes used to get in, bite her and she kept on waking up in the middle of night due to the mosquito bites !
It was then my hubby got the Hummer Plugin Ultrasonic Mosquito Repeller . This plugin machine is similar to the repeller machines like Good knight or Mortein , but there is no liquidator in it . No chemicals /vapours, no fumes , no sprays , so you can plugin as and when you need to .
How does it work :
Plug in and put it on,an indicator light glows. A very very feeble sound more like a rattle or hum is heard , and it is believed that this ultrasonic waves drive away mosquitoes upto 25 sq.mts.
My Experience with the product :
I was so enthu to use it. But all my hopes vapourised when I found that the machine did no good to the mosquitoes except increasing the electricity bill for us ! 😛 . I kept on trying it for days until one day I stopped using it and switched to Chicco Mosquito Repellent Cream for babies . Will review that soon.
PRICE : 130 INR
- No liquidator
- No intense heating of the machine
- No chemicals / harsh vapours/fumes/sprays , sooo safe for baby
- Compact and clean
Absolute wastage of money inspite of trying it for weeks
My Rating : 0.5 /5
Would I recommend to others : Hell NO ! Don’t buy this , instead consult your ped for a good mosquito repellant cream for your baby asap 🙂
