Warmer weather brings outdoor fun as well as pesky mosquitoes that potentially harbor dangerous viruses. We invite you to consider some inexpensive essentials that could offer more comfort and protection for your readers at home and on the go.

Insect Repellent and Soothing After Bite Treatment:

Natrapel 1 oz. pump spray - a DEET-free insect repellent that provides Natrapel® 8. 8+ hours of protection from biting insects and ticks. Natrapel is a safe and effective way to protect children from the nuisance of insects. Natrapel® 8-hour is completely safe on gear and will not melt jackets, fishing line, and other synthetic materials. 1oz. size is airline-approved so carry it on in a pocket, purse or bag. MSRP: $3.99

After Bite New & Improved – In case of a bite, don’t let it itching and scratching ruin the fun. After Bite's advanced formula with baking soda now provides even better relief for the whole family. For over 30 years, After Bite's pharmacist-preferred formula has provided instant itch relief for bites from mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and other common insects. The proprietary mix of soothing ingredients acts fast when you need it most. MSRP $3.99.

After Bite is easy to carry in a purse or stash in the car or a backpack, and is like a little magic wand that takes the “ouch” out of a bite to keep kids, moms and dads happy outdoors together.
We would love to send you our new After Bite insect bite treatment and Natrapel DEET-free insect repellent (both available in travel friendly sizes) in case you work on segments specific to summer preparedness – camps, picnics, BBQ’s, camping.

My Take on these products
We have a HUGE mosquito problem at our home and we live by a creek which makes it even worse! This spring has been worse than in past years and it makes us not want to send our kids outside. We also have had concerns about some of the chemicals that are in some of the mosquito sprays, so we truly appreciated trying out Natrapel.

In tryout out these products we were impressed with how well they worked. We had used the original After Bite and it worked very well, but the kids always complained that it stings when we put it on. The Kids After Bite however seemed to spot the itching without the sting which definitely makes us converts!

The Natrapel did what it says above, the spray went on smooth and was not sticky. What was best was that it kept the mosquitoes away and it did not have all of the chemicals that I have seen in some of the other sprays that we have used in the past which is always a positive thing in our books!

All-in-all if you are having issues with mosquitoes, I highly encourage you to try this out!
