3 Reasons Insect Repellents Are a Camping Essential
This summer, take on new adventures and enjoy the great outdoors at campsites across the country, but don’t let biting insects ruin your experience. Below are 3 reasons safe and effective insect repellents, like Ranger Ready Repellents, should always be part of your travel essentials.
- Ticks Can Be Tricky
In early 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report that said nearly 500,000 people every year are diagnosed with Lyme disease caused by tick bites. Ticks that carry Lyme disease can be found everywhere, including socks, hats, backpacks, and even lawn or beach chairs. Lyme disease can be life altering, causing chronic illness that includes joint pain and brain fog, but bringing a safe and effective insect repellent on your trip can take that worry away. Ranger Ready Repellents has two types of repellents – body-worn and clothing-worn – that provide two long-lasting layers of protection against ticks for 12 hours. Treat your tent, hiking boots, and sleeping bags with Permethrin repellent the day before you head out of town and use Picaridin on your skin before you head out on the trail.
- Make Lasting Memories – Without the Mosquitos
Chances are the campsite or resort your visit can be near some of the most enjoyable walking and hiking trails in the area. Early morning hikes and evening family strolls are times when some of the best family memories are made, but it’s also the times when mosquitos are most active, which can really put a damper on your experience. Ranger Ready’s Picaridin 20% body-worn insect repellent is an easy solution – it repels mosquitos for 12 hours, it’s safe for the entire family, including children over age-1, it’s not greasy on the skin, and it won’t damage your clothing or gear.
- Your Camping Partners Trust You
Maybe you’re the person who people trust to bring the best food, or you’re the person who always has the first aid kit. Whatever it is, your camping companions trust you to be prepared. So, when the insects start biting, be the person who always has the best bug spray. Ranger Ready’s body-worn repellent with Picaridin 20% is available in four convenient sizes, perfect for packing on any hike or passing around a campfire. It will give you and your crew 12 hours of protection against ticks and mosquitos, and 8 hours of protection against gnats, biting flies, midges, and other biting insects. So, from morning breakfast to nighttime s’mores, your entire camp can be bite free.
