At least where I live people always say, “This bugs are terrible this year.” They say that EVERY year, though! The bugs are always terrible! It’s a real challenge with where we live, and I imagine where most people live. I think it takes away a lot of the enjoyment of spring and summer if you’re constantly worried about bug bites and bugs flying around your head and into your eyes, etc. That’s why I pack both sunscreen and family-friendly Buzz Away Extreme® in my kids’ camp backpacks.
1 – Cover up! If the kids are going into the woods are doing a lot of outdoor exploring, they wear soft cotton pants in light colors, as well as long sleeved shirts. We generally don’t have too much heat, but the clothes are lightweight anyway.
2 – Protect yourselves all day, every day. I used to think mosquitoes were only active during dawn and dusk but now they’re out there all day, every day. So think about protecting your skin 24/7 pretty much. Bugs get in the house!
3 – Apply sunscreen before bug spray. In fact, let the sunscreen dry for about 15 minutes before putting on Buzz Away Extreme®. If you reapply sunscreen, reapply bug spray too. Don’t mix up the order of things!
4 – Get Buzz Away Extreme. This is an innovative, non-greasy mosquito repellent that utilizes a proprietary blend of plant based ingredients that work together to protect your family. The formula contains Citronella Oil, Geranium Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Cedarwood Oil, and a dozen other plant based carrier oils, aromatic essential oils, plant-based preservatives, and purified water too. This is a DEET-free bug spray, and it’s effective too! Buzz Away Extreme® has been independently field tested and proven as an effective DEET-free insect repellent. We don’t do spring or summer without it.
5 – Convenient wipes are wonderful! You can also get Buzz Away Extreme in wipes form. There’s nothing as easy as using DEET-free mosquito and tick repellent with a One-Two-Swipe. And there’s a pop-up dispenser that is great to travel with.
I love having the two formulas. The spray is crucial for our summer lives, and the wipes are easy to use when applying insect repellent to the face, especially on wiggly kids. I feel more confident about summer when I have this combo at home:
