Keep Mosquitoes Away with this Natural Product

fight mosquito

Did you know there are more than 60 different species of mosquitoes in Ohio? I had no idea there were so many, all I know is that they like to attack me and my kids like crazy.

What scares me the most is that there are several types of Ohio mosquitoes that can transmit serious, fatal diseases including encephalitis, dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus, Zika virus (travel required), and malaria!

Natural ways to avoid mosquito bites include wearing light colored clothing, covering your arms and legs, staying away from standing water, and wearing a naturally derived insect repellent.

The best way to prevent catching one of these diseases from a mosquito is to avoid mosquito bites in the first place is with repellent. I have used and trust DEET-free Bug Band for years now.

My kids are at camp right now and both are wearing a BugBand. It is better than spraying their bodies, especially since who knows how often they will shower! When they are done using it, they can store it in the plastic “pod” to use again the next day or they can keep it out near their camp site to keep mosquitoes away from them and their cabins.
