Q.

Plug in mosquito repellent

Hi, I was just wondering when it is safe to use one of those electrical plug in mozzie repellent things.

My LO is 17 months old, and Mikes Mozzie spray doesn' t work for long enough.

And a net is out of the question, it would be used as a swing LOL.

The mosquito repellents are regarded as safe even for use in the bedrooms of young children, but the single safest and best method of protection is a mosquito net.
