RIVERSIDE, CA--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - Today, ieCrowd, a company focused on bringing breakthrough health innovations to the marketplace, launches a campaign on Crowdfunder as their highly anticipated DEET-free mosquito repellent, Kite Shield, becomes available on Indiegogo InDemand. ieCrowd has also secured a multi-year agreement for international distribution of Kite products with a potential value of $80,000,000. Kite Shield uses a revolutionary technology that makes people virtually invisible to mosquitoes by blocking their receptors.
