dont bug me

warm weather is here bringing with it picnics in the park, backyard bbq's, summer camp...and pesky mosquitoes. with all that time spent out of doors, and the incidence of west nile virus on the rise, ya gotta protect you and yours from those biting little buggers. but what insect repellent can you trust to work effectively that will not also expose your children to poisonous chemicals? according to the new england journal of medicine, organic bite blocker, is the #1 one ranked natural bug spray. made from plant extracts like soybeans and geraniums, it is apparently safe, natural and, according to the USDA, as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes, flies and more. oh yeah, and it's waterproof so fill up the super soakers, turn on the sprinklers, roll out the slip n slide. It is, after all, summertime.
