The Wing Guard is a biomimicry insect repelling device that mimics the visuals, sounds, and motions of the dragonfly to stop flies from landing on food items. It aims to combat the hygiene problem of places that rely on temporary food service establishments, such as wet markets and open-air farmer’s stalls.
Using the Wing Guard can enhance the stall’s physical and psychological hygiene condition, and effectively prevent the transmission of many serious infectious diseases.
