Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

Living in South Florida, most people are all too familiar with mosquito bites. Well, thankfully there may finally be a way to relieve the itchy little bumps left behind after after a bite. It’s all thanks to a South Florida mom.

Kelley Higney, a Loxahatchee mom, said her family owns a distribution company and one of their International customers told her about using a suction tool for mosquito bites. Kelley teamed up with a manufacturer and founded,”Bug Bite Thing.”

The item is available online through her site and on Amazon.

So, how does it work? Using suction, the device sucks out the mosquito saliva, which is what causes people to itch and skin to become irritated.

Here’s a video of how it works:
