Crappie Gear: Bug Band Mosquito Repellent

            Fishing isn’t as fun when swatting mosquitos, flies and other pest. Crappie fishermen have an easy way to enjoy fishing without having to deal with flying insects.

According to laboratory and field studies by the University of Florida in Gainesville, Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBan Mosquito Repellent, has been proven effective in repelling mosquitoes. This means it makes a great alternative to DEET mosquito repellents. Products with Geraniol are safe for the whole family when used as directed. BugBand’s products come in many forms and strengths that allow users to choose the right one for their activity.

BugBand is trusted by the Boy Scouts of America. The “Be Prepared” brand products has combined the long lasting protection of BugBand Insect Repelling Bands with the potent strength of their Towelettes with insect repelling lotion. Each kit contains two bands and eight towelettes for two strengths of protection.

Both products are easy, safe and effective. The Band forms a protective vapor shield around the immediate area, keeping mosquitoes a safe distance away. It’s waterproof and is packaged in a reusable plastic pod to preserve the band between uses. It features a break-away strap should it become entangled. The Band can be worn on the wrist, belt loop, hatband or fastened in tents.

The towelettes allow application of lotion to exposed skin like face and neck. They can be folded and stored in the original package for future use. Keeping one in your pocket while outdoors is a good idea.

MSRP for Boy Scout Combo Kit is $12.95.
