Sunburn and insect bites can ruin a fun afternoon in the garden. With this Insect Repellent Hat
, you can kill two mosquitoes with one stone. This hat offers superior sun protection, plus bug protection
thanks to an odorless bug repellent soaked into the cloth.
The bug repelling effect comes from Permethrin - a floral scent that imitates natural bug repellents found in chrysanthemum plants. The hat is treated with Permethrin and a proprietary blend of other ingredients. These mosquito repellants bond to the fabric, creating a long lasting Insect Shield effect. This formula will outlast the hat under normal circumstances - it's designed to survive 70 wash cycles.
This insect repellent hat uses the first treated cloth recognized by the EPA
for its effectiveness in controlling mosquitoes, horse flies, ticks, chiggers, flying ants, midges, and no-see-ums
. Stinging insects are more than painful annoyances - they can also carry life threatening illnesses. This hat helps protect you against pests that can carry West Nile virus, Lyme disease, malaria and other insect-borne diseases.
Permethrin has been in use since 1977, and it is not known to trigger any adverse reactions. It has been widely used in children's lice control shampoos and flea dips for dogs. You can wear this hat around your whole family without any hidden dangers. Permethrin is a preferred control agent because it has a minimal effect on birds, fish, or mammals. If DEET irritates your eyes or causes a skin rash, then Permethrin offers the same benefits without the drawbacks.
This hat is also a stylish and effective source of personal shade. It has a sun protection rating of UPF 50+
, which is the maximum sun protection you can get with cloth. If you're particularly susceptible to sun burn, we also carry an earth friendly sunscreen
that you can put on your scalp under the hat. Each layer of protection means less chance of a painful sunburn!
