It is that time of year again and the bugs are BAD! The Bug Stick is perfect for camping, picnics, working outside, golfing, basically anytime you are outside, you can be protected. Just rub the stick on your skin in "stripes", anywhere it is exposed. Your body heat creates a barrier so the bugs won't bug you! Great for kids because it is safe, not like the chemical-laden sprays and products that say they work, this one does! Makes a great gift for anyone that spends time outdoors. Great to take on trips; portable, and not a liquid, so it can go on planes!
