How does one become an InsectHobbyist? For us, this took a series of highly intense personal experiences which led to curiosity which led to an outright obsession with the tiny little blood-sucking monsters known as mosquitos.
Since you're here, we're pretty confident that you're dealing with these (or similar) creatures in one way or another too. Let us share our knowledge, pro tips, and life-saving hacks with you and spare you from a lot of trouble!
We completely understand that insects play a crucial role in the balance of the whole ecosystem. Nevertheless, our human nature keeps on reminding us that they should rather be avoided. Do you find insects repulsing? Scary? Annoying at best? That's not just your First World hypersensitivity. Deep inside, your instincts warn you that these creatures could indeed be dangerous for you – potentially even deadly.
Thanks to our extensive travels to the tropical parts of the world (Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, etc.) we've experienced on our own itching and bleeding skin how painful, and frustrating insects can be. Moreover, we've also learned that fighting them off can be a real challenge.
“Oh, really? But the market is full of 100% effective repellents, isn't it?”, you might be now objecting. Sure! There are tons of repellents, protective wearables, mosquito nets, electric and burning devices that promise to save you from getting bitten. But unless you truly understand the enemy you're facing and the options you have, finding the right solution will most likely be an expensive and lengthy hit-and-miss journey.

Our Core Values
About The Team
Our team is just as diverse as you, our readers: we are avid travelers and outdoor enthusiasts, campers and fishermen, homemakers and gardeners. What we all have in common, though, is that we deal with insects, spiders, rats, or snakes really often – probably much more often than most people would consider 'normal.
Each of us has his or her own array of favorite topics, based on our personal experience and previous research. Of course, from time to time we like to venture into the parts unknown to broaden our horizons and learn something new.
Most importantly, our common goal is to help you deal with the insects and any other animal intruders you might encounter at your home or during your travels as smoothly and painlessly as possible.
We're not here to sell you the illusion of a single perfect solution and miraculous product. Our opinions are always genuine, our reviews honest, and our intentions good. We hope our website will become your favorite source of reliable, valuable, and trustworthy information.
