My Take on the Blanket
This blanket is so lightweight, yet covers so much and you can rest assured that it will work wonders on those summer days when insects tend to be pesky and sometimes dangerous as well. I mentioned that this is lightweight, but it is also quite thin, making it easy to transport and even easier to use and clean up afterward. I have tried it around the house and love its weight and the potential of it keeping me safe, and I know that when the weather gets warmer and I can be outside that I will definitely be using this!! If you spend time outdoors you should definitely check this out as it is worth the price!

Thank you for the tip about the blanket. I was looking around for Insect Shield info and your post lead me to discover their retail page. I don't remember seeing it last year when ticks first became a problem in my area and their prices are great compared to what I was finding in the spring of 2012. Thanks again. Marcy
