If you love the outdoors you have noticed mosquitoes and other
biting insects are everywhere. Bites and stings are itchy and
painful, and these insects can spread diseases such as West Nile
Virus, Lyme Disease and Dengue Fever. Protect yourself against
biting insects by using a trusted insect repellent.
Designed for outdoor work crews, our 10 Hour Insect Repellent
uses 100% DEET to repel biting insects up to 10 hours. Just a few
sprays will do the trick, no need to saturate. Our 2 oz. bottle can
last as long as 3 aerosol cans if used as directed.
In addition to using insect repellent here are a few tips to
help prevent insect bites and stings:
- Mosquitoes and other insects are most active during dusk. It is
best to avoid being outdoors during this time of day.
- Insects thrive near pooling or standing water. Pick up
materials that catch rain water and drain off any standing water to
help prevent insect colonies from forming.
- Keep insects out of your clothing by wearing long sleeve shirts
and tucking your pants into your socks when walking through the
woods or in fields.
- Insects are drawn towards fragrances so avoid scented products
like perfumes and lotions when you know you will be spending a lot
of time outdoors.
