A Family Friendly Summer Essential - PIC® All-Natural TWIST-IT® and Bugables® Mosquito Repellent Stickers

With the Summer months now fully upon us, it's time to get outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather! Living in the Northeast part of the country often means long Winter months spent indoors, so when the sun and warmth finally arrive we take full advantage of every minute of it.
While we absolutely love this season, protecting ourselves and the kids from those pesky mosquitoes, gnats, and other buggy residents of the great outdoors can become somewhat of a task. Keeping the kids and ourselves comfortable and free of insect bites is definitely a priority and I prefer to find natural remedies that don't involve lathering sensitive skin with harsh chemicals. This year PIC has provided smart and safe solutions that are perfect for families who are on-the-go during the Summer months. Bugables Mosquito repellent stickers and the Twist-It Mosquito Repeller help to repel mosquitoes for up to 200 hours each! Every Bugables Sticker and Twist-It is infused with natural repellent oils (Citrolla oil, Geraniol, and Lemongrass oil) that ward off the bugs, so you can get outside and play.

Each Bugables sticker (pictured right) affixes easily to clothing, hats, backpacks, and shoes with the help of a double stick adhesive square. Each Bugables sticker easily sustains several uses (simply cover with wax paper when removed from clothing and enclose in a plastic zip bag). The Twist-It is incredibly versatile; by simply twisting it around the base of a beach or picnic umbrella, around the handle-bars of a bicycle, or by hanging it off of a backpack (with the small hook at the top of the Twist-It) your all set for your next (bug-free) adventure!                     
About The TWIST-IT and Bugables:  TWIST-IT® is a new, flexible device that wraps around umbrellas, bike handles, strollers and other outdoor objects to repel mosquitoes for up to 200 hours. The first insect repellent with this unique delivery system, TWIST-IT® eliminates the need to apply repellent directly on the skin. Instead, the TWIST-IT® can be wrapped around a variety of outdoor items to create a long-lasting ten-foot radius of protection from insect-borne diseases and irritating bites, providing pest-free summer barbecues, camping trips or time to lounge by the pool.

 Bugables® Mosquito Repellent Stickers also contain PIC’s all-natural repellent formulation and adhere to hats, clothing, beach bags and more for up to 200 hours of protection against mosquitoes. Bugables® work by emitting an 'aura 'of all natural, plant-based essential oils, masking human odors that attract insects. Bugables® are fun, designed with kids in mind and are an effective alternative for parents who prefer not to spray their children with bug sprays containing DEET.

The suggested retail price for TWIST-IT® is $5.99 and for Bugables® Mosquito Repellent Stickers it is $3.99. PIC® products, including TWIST-IT® and Bugables®, are available at more than 10,000 retail outlets, including Walmart, Walgreens, Toys R Us and Bed Bath & Beyond.
