    I think Mosquitoes are colour blind.. I hope this is not another scam

    Mosquitoes are attracted to human body heat & CO2.

    Gow, it is a well known fact that mosquitoes are attracted to dark clothing, especially black and dark blue.

    May be a buisness of the minister from the area who said dengue is contrcated by wearing short dresses that exposes the body for mosquito bites

    It is a normal dress for Muslim ladies.

    I just wish to know if the shop owner and the sales persons are wearing these themselves :)

    The thinking is in the right direction anyway.The idea is to keep fully covered to prevent bites. However it would help if the fabric itself in someway repels mosquitos. Good attempt!

    Anyway prevention is better than cure!
