I believe two of the worst outdoor experiences I have ever had occurred while I was hosting outdoor shows for ESPN. It was not the fact that I was with the network, had nothing to do with the guests on the show, it was all related to bugs. I was with a group about 1000 miles north of Montréal looking for caribou in the summer and went through a blitzkrieg with no-seeums. it was literally so bad that if you breathe in, you had a nose full of biting bugs. Second horrible experience, Whitetail hunting down near Corpus Christi. I got chiggers in my socks and those bites lasted for over a month. Never again. I talked with Janine Robertson spokesperson for a company called Insect Shield®

Spokesperson Janine Robertson: “Ticks hate it – They will do somersaults to get away from it. Literally! If you put a tick on your ElimiTick pant or shirt and watch it, the tick will go into freeze mode, or it will do anything to get away. This is the repellent doing its job. The repellent is fused to the fabric – ElimiTick uses Insect Shield Technology. The active ingredient (repellent) is bonded to the fabric fibers. Long-lasting – Because the active ingredient is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers, it lasts the expected life of the product.

Odorless – ElimiTick is odorless. This means you can wear it without concern when hunting scent-savvy big game. Repels many insects – ElimiTick repels ticks, chiggers, mosquitoes, flies and midges (no-see-ems).Proven – The technology is the result of years of research and field study. Stays in clothes – Because the repellent is bonded to the fabric, it stays in the clothing, not on your skin like sprays. This is one reason we like to call it tick armor. No restrictions for use – There are no restrictions in using ElimiTick. Protect your entire family from ticks and other insects.
