Who’s up for a Bug-Free Summer Giveaway? Summer means time outside (finally nice weather!). As you prep for your summer plans, be sure to include bug repellent in your “must have” essentials, whether you’re headed to the beach, cottage, or back-country or having a “stay-cation”.
Note: the following giveaway is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec.
For me, I’m mindful of where I go and what bugs I may encounter. The back of the cottage? Mosquito heaven! So that environment calls for layers of pants and long sleeves to protect my skin.
You should also be mindful of infants, toddlers, and big kids in regards to insect protection and bites. I opt to keep my infants indoors during the high insect hours of the day/evening. My toddlers have a tough time swapping the bugs away – hence more than their share of bites. After Bite is always handy for providing them itch relief. For my big kids, they know not to put sprays near their eyes when applying on their own.
When choosing a bug repellent, look for one that is safe, effective and provides long-lasting protection. Things to look for include:
Effective active ingredients such as DEET or Picaridin – available in Ben’s DEET and Natrapel
- Ben’s 30 Tick & Insect Repellent. Ben’s® 30 Tick & Insect Repellent offers protection from ticks and insects that may carry West Nile Virus, Lyme disease, Zika, Malaria or other infectious diseases. Providing up to 8 hours of effective protection, Ben’s® 30’s unique formula is made to evaporate slowly – so repellent stays on longer with little absorption into the skin.
- Natrapel Lemon Eucalyptus Spray. Natrapel® Lemon Eucalyptus DEET-free formula provides up to 6 hours of protection from biting insects and ticks. This great protection formula has an active ingredient derived from a natural plant base (Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus) which provides a cool refreshing scent.
- After Bite. After Bite®Gel is a powerful treatment that provides instant relief from insect bites and stings. This gel contains baking soda and tea tree oil to soothe the skin and stop the itch and pain.
These products are available at a number of retailers including Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws, Rexall, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Canadian Tire, SAIL, and Sobeys.
