Bug Band to the Rescue for Summer Fun

bug bandsIt’s summer and we spend more time outside this time of year.  It’s also horse show season which means we are at farms, horse parks and in a lot of places where there are a lot of bugs.  I am not a fan of bug spray – I don’t like the smell or the feel of it on my skin.  I was so excited when Bug Band presented us with their products to try.  They are now in our arsenal and my entire family is using these products.

BugBand helps keep pests away naturally when enjoying the outdoors this summer! US-based BugBand is a line of naturally derived, DEET-free insect repellents, including wristbands, pump spray, towelettes, bead bags and portable diffusers. BugBand uses Geraniol, a natural essential oil derived from geraniums, to actively and effectively repel mosquitoes, flies, gnats, fleas, no-see-ums and ticks. BugBand Towelettes and Pump Sprays are available for heavy protection, and can repel ticks that carry Lyme disease, which is a concern nationwide. BugBand Wristbands are waterproof and work effectively to repel insects naturally for up to 120 hours! BugBand also has a Portable Diffuser that would be great at your summer outdoor barbecues and activities to keep the bugs away from you while enjoying your meal! The BugBand line is non-toxic and safe for the entire family, even your dogs. Available in a variety of colors.  Check it out here for more information http://bugband.net

We’ve even put them around our ankles when we haven’t wanted them on our wrists.  Yes, I have even put one on the dogs harness to help repel bugs.
