DEET-FREE BugBand keeps insects away

This is a promotional post.

Just last week I sat at my son’s soccer practice at 5pm and the moment I sat down in my folding chair on the grass to watch, I had these tiny gnats crawling on my arm and my Starbucks cup. I spent the entire 1 1/2 hours flicking them off of me constantly. I had yet to encounter these little pests this season so I was not prepared. All I could think about was the fact that I have BugBand products that I know are safe and could have easily shared wipes with the other parents, but they were at home. After practice when I finally got home, I threw those wipes in his soccer bag. I took the bracelets and put in the RV pile to get in there the next time we camp. Wipes for sport games and bands for camping weekends and I won’t be bothered anymore. I do intend to pick up more BugBand wipes as I saw they are at my local Target store so I also have wipes in the RV along with the bracelets.


The active ingredient in BugBand products is Geraniol, it is naturally derived. It is proven effective in repelling many insects such as mosquitos, house flies, stable flies, horn flies, cockroaches, fire ants, fleas, gnats, dog ticks, lone star ticks and no-see-ums. It does the same thing DEET does only this is natural, not a harsh chemical. BugBand is even safe for babies and pets! No more rock-paper-scissors on who will sit away from the DEET product with baby so the others can get protected and lessen the insect bites.

With BugBand products you get a choice in strengths so you get the right protection depending on your activity. BugBand is a part of the ‘be prepared’ brand products and is officially licensed by the Boy Scouts of America. Really, you can throw that harsh product you have always cautiously used and keep BugBand on hand without the worry. They are at many retailers and in the retailer near me, I found them on a aisle peg near lotions.
