With its flip-flop-filled beach days, amazing tastes (watermelon! strawberry!), opportunity for open windows, and generally sunny mood, summer is one of the best-loved seasons of the year. However, in the case of the mosquitoes that come along with it, summer can also, well, totally suck.
Enter Bug Bam Mosquito-Repelling Wristbands. Completely recyclable and made from 100% natural and non-toxic ingredients, they’ve been scientifically proven to repel mosquitoes and other flying, biting insects for up to 100 hours. Used by the U.S. Navy, the Secret Service, and the Boy Scouts of America, they’re even tough enough to earn rave reviews from our own kid tester who put them through the most rigorous test of all: a stint at summer camp.
Check out this natural bug-bite prevention ($3.95) at Whole Foods and at bugbam.com, where you can also find Bug Bam’s Mosquito, Flea, and Tick Pet Tags for dogs and its Mosquito Repelling Area Grid — a must-have for your next outdoor gathering. (Your bite-free guests will be eternally grateful!)
