What’s Bugging You

Weekends around our house are usually filled with chores that weren’t quite finished during the week.  This weekend included mowing the yard.  I generally volunteer for the task.  We use a push mower.  As much as I gripe to myself about having to put forth the effort, I really do love the exercise.  One day of mowing and I’ve well surpassed the 10,000 step goal!  This time of year though, outdoor activities of any kind can be a little less fun thanks to our flying insect friends.  #diemosquitodie

Thankfully, I remembered the Bug Guard!  What’s Bug Guard?  I’m so glad you asked!   It is Avon’s DEET-free line of insect repellents.  With the variety of products in this line, you’re sure to find just the right choice for you and your family.


If you prefer a lotion to a spray, then Bug Guard Plus IR3535 is your choice.  Available in 2 scents, both lotions are water resistant & provide SPF 30 protection.

The strongest repellent in the Bug Guard line, offers Picaridin.  Picaridin is an alternative to DEET.  It has a low odor, with a light, clean feel.   This spray does not have SPF and is not water resistant.  It would be a great choice for a day of hiking in the woods or for that upcoming camping trip.  Those pesky bugs won’t stand a chance!

This item also comes in a handy towelette!

So wherever your travels take you this summer, be sure to take along Bug Guard!
