Unfortunately, you live in an area where you can be eaten alive by the little critters that live outside: insects, mosquitoes etc. We have some of the top brands of insect repellent and bite relief products on the market. We want to make sure you DON'T get bit so our Ben's and Natrapel (among others) Insect replants that are all DEET free and provide up to eight hours of insect free time to enjoy. In case you did not pump on or use towelettes to put on insect repellents, those same brands also carry sting relief products in all types of delivery systems - pumps, sprays and towelettes, each having the formulated itch treatment to relieve the pain cause by swelling and itching from those critter bites.

Bug bites, though they can be small and at times are only a little bit annoying, can also become infected and painful if not treated properly. Make sure to always have some type of insect bite relief around to make sure you do not itch and scratch and make the bite become infected. You should also make sure to keep an eye on a bite that does not seem to be going away. Though you may have thought it was just an insect bite, it could end up being something a bit more serious such as a spider or tick bite. Be prepared!
