New Insect Shield repellent apparel hits market for spring
Apr '09
Spring has arrived at last. Soon, the threat of being bitten by mosquitoes and ticks will be an issue for many of us, and these insects will be around for several months -- potentially spreading dangerous diseases.

Insect Shield, an innovator in insect-repellent technology, has partnered with top brands to bring a collection of protective apparel and accessories to market.

Look for an expansive collection of Insect Shield apparel for hunting, fishing, camping, adventure travel, and other time spent outdoors from L.L.Bean, Orvis, REI, ExOfficio, Zorrel and RailRiders. L.L.Bean is also launching a new collection of outdoor apparel products for kids, including graphic tees, zip-off pants and accessories; and new Insect Shield hats and accessories are available from Buff, Tilley, Outdoor Research, and Carolina Manufacturing.

For gardeners, Sloggers Garden Outfitters is offering a variety of Insect Shield products designed for bug protection while gardening. Ergodyne, pioneer and leader in the development of products designed for worker comfort, safety and productivity, is launching a number of Insect Shield products to help keep workers protected from bugs on the job. To access all of the new Insect Shield products visit www.insectshield.com and click on "Where to Buy."

Insect Shield clothing repels mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums.) This includes insects with the potential to carry diseases such as Malaria, West Nile virus, Dengue fever and Lyme disease. The protection is invisible, odorless, and as easy as putting on your clothes. Unlike traditional topical repellents Insect Shield products cannot be misused or over-applied. Insect Shield products are EPA-registered, can be worn by infants, children of all ages, and women who are pregnant or nursing.
