Buggies Clothing Insect Shield Review

I live in Florida which I sometimes think is the bug capital of the world. When we recently received warnings about mosquito born diseases affecting adults and children in my county….that was it. It was time to take action and protect my family from insects. Buggies Clothing with Insect Shield is a “revolutionary new defense in the battle against bugs.” I was intrigued…and wanted to learn more. It protects against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and more. This is perfect for those hikes into the woods when I worry about Ticks and Lyme disease. Buggies Clothing Insect Shield line of apparel for infants and children use a man made version of natural insect repellants found in certain flowers. It lasts up to 70 washings which is a big bonus for me with my dirty little ones. In addition to that Buggies Insect Shield Repellent apparel also has UPF 30 built in sunshield, is antimicrobial and stain resistant.

We had the opportunity to try two shirts in the Buggies Clothing Insect Shield line and I was impressed with the softness of the material. The Buggies toddler shirts were made out of organic cotton, soy and a touch of spandex. My kids liked the whimsical designs. Our first opportunity to try it out was at a recent fall festival. I was a bit nervous about not arming ours with our bug spray but I wanted to give the shirts an honest assessment. My husband and I decided to wear normal clothing without bug shield either so we would have something to compare it to. Within 15 minutes my husband and I were smacking away mosquitoes while my children were happily jumping in the bounce house. While my husband and I broke down and started spraying away…my children were fine. I am definitely going to stock up on Buggies Insect Shield apparel so that I have peace of mind when we venture out into the bug infested Florida night.
