Insect Shield apparel and gear products combine the Insect Shield process with a proprietary formulation of the insect repellent permethrin—resulting in effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of the product.

Insect Shield for pets puts insect repellency near your dog’s skin, instead of directly on it (so no reapplication is needed is they get wet), and the protection is invisible. Insect Shield does not have to enter into your dog’s system for it to be effective. Nor, do the insects have to bite in order for the protection to work.

You simply have to put Insect Shield dog apparel on your pet, or have them use the products, and it helps ward off a variety of pesky and dangerous insects. Easy peasy!

marley and insect shield bandanaWe were sent one of their doggie Bandanas to check out. As you can see, it is very bright and adorable! It is odorless, light weight and washable! In fact, you can get 70 washings before the treatment fades! The bandanas work well in mildly buggy areas, but the tees, hoodies and vest would be best for areas like woods and swapy fields. While Marley was happy to leave it on,it was a bit too small. She would be better off with one of the XL neck gaiters!

If you plan on being outside this Summer with your faithful companion, you need to check out both the apparel and pet lines from Insect Shield! They will be your best friend for outdoor fun! Check out their website for a retailer near you!
