Insect Repellent Bandanna

Regular Price: $14.99

Sunburn and insect bites can put a real damper on the gardening experience. This Insect Repellent Bandanna not only repels biting bugs, but it also blocks sunlight and keeps sweat from dripping into your eyes. It does all of these things thanks to a revolutionary new cloth called InsectShield.

If you're tired of fending off mosquitoes and flies, put one of these bandannas on and put the fly swatter away. Insect Shield fabric is treated with Permethrin and bonding agents that keep the repellent from washing off. The bug repellant bandanna can be washed 70 times or more without losing effectiveness.

Every time you wear it, the bandana releases a smell that insects associate with the Chrysanthemum flower. Chrysanthemums contain a natural insecticide called pyrethrum that destroys the nervous system of harmful bugs like mosquitoes, mites, chiggers, lice, no-see-hums, biting flies, and ants. Many biting and stinging insects will fly around the block if they catch even a whiff of chrysanthemum. Best of all, mums are virtually odorless to humans (they have a mild citrus/plum scent).

Permethrin is a synthetic form of this natural defense mechanism, and it repels harmful insects without killing beneficial insects. Permethrin has been widely tested for use with children, pets, and the elderly - it is even used in lice shampoo for children. Permethrin inhibits insect growth and repels adult mosquitoes. Lab tests show that it has a low toxicity compared to chemical insecticides, and it is biodegradeable. Unlike DEET , Permethrin does not stain or dissolve clothing and there have been no observed allergic reactions in more than 30 years of use.

The sunblock bandanna is currently available only in blue. Red will be available in the next couple of months, but blue is the only color we have in stock at the moment.

You may wonder why using this Insecticidal Bandana makes more sense than spraying on some bug repellent. Well, this headpiece also delivers great sun protection. The sun and insect-proof bandana has the highest sun protection rating of any clothing - it is rated UPF 50+. That means that the tightly woven threads block more than 98% of the sun's harmful rays.

It's traditional to wear a bandanna around your neck or over your hair for sun protection, but it can also be worn over the mouth to protect against dust and sunburn at the same time. The bug proof bandanna can absorb twice it's weight in moisture, which keeps plenty of sweat out of your eyes and off of your neck. If you have a good natured dog, you can even put an Insect Shield bandanna around their neck to keep repel ticks and mosquitoes.
