Kite products protect us, our pets and our homes with effective, innovative, world-changing technology that puts a stop to insects ruining life’s big adventures. We discovered a way to achieve our goals without harsh chemicals like DEET. Our formulas can provide harmless protection for everyone.

The first product based on the Kite platform is Kite Shield, a spray used to protect against mosquitoes. Kite Shield is DEET-free and has shown effective in blocking mosquitoes’ CO2 and other receptors from recognizing humans. Even more Kite products are in development to both fight the threat of and protect against other insects.

An Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign raised more than half a million dollars for Kite Patch, an upcoming Kite-based product addressing spatial repellency. Kite Patch has been touted by hundreds of news outlets worldwide such as the New York Times, NPR, Fortune, Entrepreneur and more. Kite products do more than simply fit into peoples’ lives: We want to change them to live fearlessly in their pursuit of new experiences.
