Are You Prepared to Fight Mosquitoes this Year?

The first of warm weather has hit Ohio and we couldn’t be more excited to get outside! I have a ton of gardening projects to tackle but so far, my family has just enjoyed being outside playing!  Another introduction to warmer months have arrived too – pesky insects, especially mosquitoes. How can they show up on the FIRST warm day?

Are you prepared for dealing with insects and mosquitoes this Spring and Summer? There is always the debate of which insect repellent is safe and best for families. I’ve tried several brands and prefer those without harsh chemicals. I was so happy that I had received a sampling of BugBand insect repellent to review just in time for us to review during our first warm days. I am excited to tell you all about it.

BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent Review

BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent is designed to protect your family from biting insects without harmful chemicals. It is safe for kids and even pets because it is plant based. BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent has a proven track record to protect against many insects including the most common pests of  mosquitoes, flies, gnats, no-see-ums and fleas! BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent comes in several forms to meet your individual preference and needs including: wristbands, pump spray, towelettes, and diffuser.

BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent uses Geraniol that is extracted from geranium oil.  (Ever wonder why so many people plant geraniums near their porches and window boxes? To deter mosquitoes. This natural oil of Geraniol not only repels mosquitoes but other blood-feeding insects!

We first tried the BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent Wrist Bands.

My kids don’t usually like getting insect repellent on, but it is a necessary evil living near the woods!  My daughter didn’t complain at all when she tried out the BugBand insect repellent wrist band!

They come in a variety of fun colors – even glow in the dark – that look more like fun than an insect repellent!  Each BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent wrist band last up to 120 hours when stored in the included plastic “pod.” I find that to be amazing!  You can wear the BugBand insect repellent wrist band on your belt, hatband, pet collar, on chairs or tents, baby stroller, or body. My daughter tried it out on both her wrist and ankle, both were comfortable and provided her the protection she needed!

BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent also comes in a pump spray, however it is not an aerosol spray that can make you have to catch your breath! It is a lotion spray without propellants. It sprays a super fine mist onto your skin. The Geraniol vapors form a protective barrier on your skin and/or clothing.

I like the BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent Towelettes. They are easily portable and great to keep with you in your purse, bag, or car. The Geraniol DEET-free towelettes give you an easy application for your exposed skin. They are available in individual packs or a handy pop up container.

The BugBand DEET-Free Insect Repellent and BedBugs No More! formulas) adhere to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations too. You can pack them with easy while traveling!
