Sure, the family can get a little annoying at times. But you’d still like to protect them against West Nile virus, Lyme Disease and whatnot — are we right?
Insect Shield hates bugs. No, the company really hates bugs. That’s why it makes a whole product line of work attire, casual clothing and accessories with an EPA-registered formulation known as permethrin built right in to the fabric fibers to repel insects. And now you can get the Insect Shield Outdoor Blanket for taking along and protecting that sometime annoying but generally decent family while camping, boating, picnicking, attending outdoor events or simply hanging out in the great outdoors.
The blanket, which measures a generous 56 in. X 74 in., repels mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas and other airborne or creepy-crawlie critters. Good for more than just dodging bug bites and aggravation, this 100 percent polyester blanket offers your family protection against those diseases we mentioned, and even malaria.
The blanket has been tested to USDA guidelines for effectiveness. The repellent in use, permethrin, is virtually sewn right in to the fabric. It’s invisible and odorless and you’ll never even know it’s there. But its protection will last through about 70 washings, which is generally considered the life of most fabrics. (And who the hell ever washes camping blankets? Most of them can stand at attention.) Priced at only about $30 or less, you can buy several or easily replace one that has gone through its life cycle or been accidentally incinerated when a loved one tried to use a camping stove alone. No special care is required and your Insect Shield Outdoor Blanket works at all temperatures.
