All Natural Bug Repellent - The Bug Juice!

As many know, I am not a fan of all these brewed-up chemical compounds we spray on us to (and in theory) help keep the bugs at bay. This is the reason we are fans of this product line!

The Bug Juice
This is an All-Natural No-See-Um & Mosquito repellent that is Made in Florida with No Chemicals, DEET, Water, or even Alcohol for it just to evaporate away and light you up like Shuttle Launch after getting a sunburn!

Speaking of DEET, have you ever taken the time to read about it? You should (Click Here), and it is interesting (much pun), to say the least... For example, when working with detailing chemicals, I wear gloves when handling paint compounds and sealants. My theory is that if you cannot drink it, you might not want it on your skin to get absorbed into your system, either!

Now, I often just run outside with my camera to grab quick shots for Flats Nation for one of our future articles or our Art section found Here.


This or jump on the Skiff to do the same, and I do not have time or think about (Mistake) putting some on as I run out the door... Then, within a few minutes, the scourge of this Planet and suspect other Planets since they can probably survive there also! These _________ (You fill in the blank) Sand Gnats / No-See-Ums proceed to maul me from the Swamps and Mangrove Creeks I live nearby...

And they are so bad sometimes that the mosquitoes are nowhere to be seen! No, Sir, the Sand Gnats have found and jumped on them and are now wiping them out... Trust me, they are some Bad Little Girls! This is because (as I read) only the females bite you, looking for mammal blood to lay eggs... A bunch of guys here just laughed aloud and said (Figures), I am pretty sure!

The only saving grace for us in South Florida is the wind! If no breeze is blowing, you better have something on; if not, then not ALL of you will make it back... And it is not a very good diet plan either; they don't eat enough for it to show up on the scales! Well, if I was not running so fast to get inside and jump in the Rain Locker (Shower for those who do not have a DD-214) to wash them off of me and slowed down some, they could grab a pound or two?

So, to that end, we did some research and landed on this product line, and it works!

And even better than some of the other items we smear and spray all over, that may equate to something skimmed off a holding tank at a place like "Three Mile Island" in long-term effects on us... 😊

This is also where the "The Bug Juice" stick comes in handy! You are not spraying it all over the Skiff to make a mess of things (what a pain that is to clean up), and it will not melt, so you can keep a few sticks located in the console of the Skiff, Truck glove box, Camera Bag, etc., and always have it when needed!

So, try "The Bug Juice" products to help you. And do not forget...
