Who are we?

Mata Bichos Lda is a company based in Pemba, northern Mozambique.  We are your Mozambican distributor for Insect Shield® apparel and gear.  The words 'Mata Bichos' in Portuguese literally means 'kill the insects'.

Insect Shield® apparel and gear is tough, it's smart, it's practical, and above all, it needs to be an essential part of your personal and corporate wardrobe - helping to protect you, your family, and your employees from insects that can carry dangerous insect-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever.  And you look good too.


Our principles are simple - to provide our customers with reliable, conscientious and efficient service.  A dedicated sales manager will assist you in kitting out your company from top to toe, and will make the ordering process a breeze from start to finish.  Need your company logos embroidered on?  No problem; let us know and we'll take you through it step by step.


Mata Bichos was set up in 2013 in response to demand for insect repellent clothing.  Local businesses are seeing the benefits - better health and increased productivity.  National and ex-pat recruits working in the oil and gas industry have peace of mind knowing that their everyday clothing gives them the protection they need. 

The Directors of the company (two English ladies) have lived in Pemba for over 10 years and know the business environment well.  We've created local employment and we are contributing to malaria awareness programmes that make a difference to the local population

We pride ourselves on our customer service, and will be happy to hear from you by any means. We speak English and Portuguese, and will do our best to accommodate you in your choice of language.
