With summer coming and the pleasure of camping trips and picnics right around the corner, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about staying protected against the ticks that carry Lyme disease bacteria. The Insect Shield blanket wards off bugs and ticks helping to keep your family bite-free. With more than 300,000 cases of Lyme disease estimated to occur in the US annually, and a range of other infections on the rise, this could be the best investment you make this year.
Insect Shield have outdoor picnic-style blankets as well as a pet blanket and a variety of other products that have in-built, odorless and effective insect protection. The blankets are washable, making them ideal for camping trips and all manner of other uses. They come in a mini size (28 x 36 inches /6.4oz) and a larger size (56 x 74 inches) that weighs just 18 ounces.
As many people pick up Lyme disease by going barefoot in their own backyard it’s also a great idea to have these blankets on hand for the kids to use when lounging in the sun this summer.
The Insect Shield technology is the result of years of research, with the company first registered back in 2003 with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many international relief organisations make use of these products to help provide effective protection against insects that carry bacteria that cause infectious disease.
Insect Shield is even approved by the US Army and the US Marine Corps, so make sure you’ve got tip-top protection against Lyme disease this year by packing this lightweight and washable Insect Shield Outdoor Blanket in the back of the car ready for any impromptu camping trip. And, if the kids are going camping, kit them out with an Insect Shield Cocoon sleeping bag to thwart any tick attacks while they sleep round the campfire.
