Around this neck of the woods, we get a lot of bugs. I constantly see bugs in all areas of my backyard! This is why I was excited to learn that One Step Ahead has a new Bug Smarties clothing line for extra protection against all those little critters. The clothes have a protected insect shield and are repellant apparel. It is effective against ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges. This clothing line is tested and proven, and includes the latest technology to ward against all the peaks.
Hayley and Zane each received a sample outfit of the Bug Smarties line. One thing I love about the clothes is it is incredibly durable. It can last through 70 launderings, which is the expected lifetime of a garment. The line can be worn by the whole family and it offers invisible, odorless protection just by putting on your clothes. The Built-In Insect Protection stays in the clothing line, not on the skin!
How does it work?
“We know that pesky bugs can ruin a family outing or a child’s outdoor adventure,” said Jennifer Smith, director at One Step Ahead. “We are happy that parents can now send their children to camp or other outdoor activities this summer with a better sense of security that they will be shielded from potentially dangerous bugs that ca carry diseases, such as Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus.”
According to the TBDA (Tick-Borne Disease Alliance), Lyme is the number one tick-borne illness in the United States. The CDC reports the number of Lyme Disease numbers are in the range of 300,000 cases/year, and 96% of these cases were reported from 13 states.
