Better use repellent, mosquito app doesn't give 100% coverage

Posted: Updated:
A test of an anti-mosquito app that says it helps keep the pesky insects away didn't work at all for NBC reporter Kerry Sanders.

This free cell phone app emits high frequency sounds.
The makers say mosquitoes don't like the sound and will stay away if the app is activated.
Sanders did just that, then stuck his arm inside a box with 5,000 mosquitoes live on the Today show Thursday morning.
Here's what happened.

Kerry Sanders,  "Ouch, this does hurt. Now I'm going to activate the app and let's just see what happens. all right so I'm waiting for this app to work, and I'm waiting!"

The company's website says: "It's not 100% coverage, but it will ease the pain of mosquitoes biting you."
