Insect Shield Bandanas
for Dogs & People
Insect Shield technology is now available for your dog! Insect Shield for Pets offers products that provide protection from fleas, ticks & other pesky bugs that can carry dangerous illnesses such as Lyme disease & heartworm.
The Insect Shield process binds a proprietary, bug repelling formula, Permethrin, tightly to fabric fibers resulting in effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of apparel (or 70 washings). Permethrin has been successfully used in the United States as a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered product since 1977, with an excellent safety record.
Originally developed to protect the US Military and Marine Corps, Insect Shield technology results from years of intensive research and field study. Numerous studies* have confirmed the effectiveness of permethrin-treated clothing as an insect repellent. Insect Shield’s own testing methods follow United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines, and the results conclusively show that the unique, long-lasting insect protection works. It is safe and the Insect Shield stays on the garmet, not on skin or fur.
Insect Shield protects against a variety of insects that can carry dangerous diseases. It repels mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums). The technology is long-lasting, effective, and convenient. Insect Shield uses a man-made version of a natural repellent found in certain types of chrysanthemum flowers.
