What is Mosi-guard?
The Glenaeon team has researched available insect repellents and found Mosi-guard to be a suitable, natural insect repellent for use by children at our school. Particularly in the response to the risk of tick bites.
According to the manufacturer, Mosi Guard is one of the most effective ways of protecting yourself from biting insects. The active ingredient of Mosi-guard is Citriodiol®, a naturally occurring extract of lemon eucalyptus oil.
Why should your child apply an insect repellent?
Because our sites at Middle Cove and Castle Crag naturally have a population of insects, particularly ticks, it is advisable that your child uses Mosi-guard insect repellent or an alternative of your choice.
What happens if my child does not apply Mosi-guard, or an alternative of my choice?
Your child may be at increased risk of being bitten by a Tick if you do not apply an insect repellent. You should asses the risks to your child and respond in a way that you are comfortable with.
Mosiguard spray pumps are available in all Primary school classrooms and in the First Aid room. All new year 3 students receive their own labelled roll-on at the start of the school year (if consent form completed)
