If you’re out in the outdoors as much as my family and I am, you’re going to run into mosquitoes. It’s hard to imagine a bigger deterrent to the casual camper or adventurer than these little buggers! They bite, they itch, they buzz, and they even carry diseases. What’s even more discouraging is that many repellents on the market still use the active ingredient DEET, which can irritate the skin and be unsafe for children in high volumes. If you’re like me, you don’t want the typical repellent that smells funny, tastes bad, comes in an aerosol can, and is expensive. The solution? Mosquitno Bandzzz and Spotzzz!
What makes Mosquitno products any different? Let’s start with its ingredients. Mosquitno products are all natural, meaning they are 100% DEET free! This means it’s non-toxic, safe for children, and made from natural citronella oil which doesn’t have the traditional smell of bug repellents.
Let’s talk about smell for a minute. Something I really loved about the Mosquitno products was the wonderful woodsy smell that they give off. From the minute I tore open the packaging I was greeted with a pleasant aroma of bug protection that didn’t wear off until I took it off after I got home. I honestly forgot that I was wearing repellent while I had my Mosquitno Bandzzz on because I didn’t smell like mosquito spray! (In fact, it probably helped cover up some of my less appealing smells from the typical camping and campfire experience. Bonus!)
The truly great thing about Mosquitno products is the convenience of them. Let’s start with the Mosquitno Bandzzz. Made of 100% silicone, these wristbands are comfortable, reusable, and even waterproof! Almost everyone is already used to wearing a silicone wristband anyway, why not let it repel bugs while you’re at it? The wristbands are available in adult and kids sizes and the Bandzzz last for 6 whole days which is over 150 hours of exposure! Each one comes in its own resealable package so now you can wear it when you need it and save it when you don’t to use again later. The Bandzzz even come in a wide variety of colors as well so you’ll look good (or glow in the dark) while you wear them!
