Living in Central Florida gives way to bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. Some are the good bugs, but a lot of them are the ones that will drive you crazy.
Bugs bites can ruin just about any fun, family activity. Yet, if your like me, you try to stay away from the toxic chemical bug sprays. You want to protect your family from annoying bugs, but you also don’t want to submit them to harmful chemicals. Thankfully, we have more natural options now.
Keeping Bugs Away Naturally with Buzz Away
Companies Are Seeing The Light
Over the past few years, I have noticed somewhat of a shift in the use of toxic chemicals like DEET as a main ingredient in bug sprays. This is a GREAT thing!
As consumers became more educated on what some of the side effects or symptoms of Deet reaction could be, they started speaking with their wallets. This seems to grab the companies attentions and the push for change.
Now when you walk down the camping or seasonal aisles of the stores, you’ll notice you have more ‘natural’ options.
More Than Just A Spray
When I received my package of Buzz Away products for this post, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have different options for bug protection. From Towelette’s to Travel size sprays, Buzz Away seems to have made it very convenient to take them with you wherever you go.
Got Bug Repellent.. Let’s Walk
My husband and I love to go for cardio walks at night. By the time we’ve gotten home, we have usually walked about 4 miles. Our walks give us the opportunity to catch up with each other with minimal distractions. Yet, sometimes these walks have gotten cut short when I start get eaten alive.
Whether it’s right after a good rain or just a normal, humid Florida night, mosquito’s are never in the lack around here.
So, the other night, as we headed out for our walk, I thought it would be a perfect time to try out one of the Buzz Away towelettes. And I’m so glad I did.
Not even half way through our walk, the bites started. I quickly pulled out my towelette and wiped down my legs.
There was a ‘bug spray’ kind of smell and a little bit of stickiness, but I can honestly say, that from that point on, I was no longer fighting up those little biting bugs.
Night Time Gardening
The next place I wanted to try out Buzz Away was out in the garden.
Sometimes I just can’t get out early enough in the morning to beat the heat, so I’ll do some of my pruning and cleaning up in the evening.
With a lite spray on my legs and arms of the Buzz Away Extreme spray, I was bug bite free for the whole evening!
What Is in Buzz Away?
OK. Wondering what’s in Buzz Away that keeps the bugs away? (hey that rhymes)
Well, here some information from their web site:
Buzz Away Extreme, a DEET-free, family-friendly, eco-positive mosquito repellant.
As we head into summer, outdoor travel is right around the corner, and keeping the bugs at bay is probably on the forefront of your reader’s minds. There’s nothing worse than trying to enjoy a summer hike or camping trip with a biting bug buzzing in your ear.
Buzz Away Extreme is geared toward the natural family who is turned off by chemical-laden repellants that can have a negative effect on both individual health and the environment. It contains geranium, citronella, cedarwood, lemongrass and peppermint, some of the most effective plant oils for warding off unwanted pests. It’s been tested by the USDA and was shown to provide 4 hours mean protection time against mosquitos.
It’s You Against The Bugs.. Just Tell Them To Buzz Away
I don’t know about you, but for me, nothing makes a night out for a walk or just hanging out with friends by fire more miserable then to be eaten up by bugs.
Having a good, natural bug spray on hand hasn’t always been something high on my list of things to keep on hand, but after trying out the Buzz Away products, it will be.
No more short walks for me. Bring it on bugs.. I’m covered!
