BugBand Wrist Bands are an ideal way to dispense the all-natural Geraniol insect repellent vapors for active outdoor lifestyles such as gardening, hiking, lawn work, fishing, hunting or many other activities. Geraniol has been extensively tested by the University of Florida and found to be the best insect repellent available today. Provides hours of protection from blood feeding insects and is environmentally and child safe. Does not contain Deet or any other controversial ingredients. Many repellents are easily diluted or rinsed off with swimming or perspiration, but not this wristband-it just keeps working. The vapors from the wristband form a protective shield 15' around the immediate area keeping blood sucking insects at a safe distance. Features a patented break-away strap that snaps if the band is entangled. Packaged in an innovative reusable plastic "pot" which can be used to store the wristband between uses. Active life of up to 120 hours can be preserved if the band is sealed between uses. The band can also be worn on belt loops, hatbands, fastened in tents, attached to baby carriages or applied to other areas. Recyclable so simply dispose of it and the pot with your plastic recyclable containers. Made in USA.
