Get your Bullfrog on and ward off mosquitos


With all the Hurricanes that have recently hit, there is more water which means more mosquitos which you need to be aware of Zika. 

Zika, the mosquito-borne viral disease, remains a threat, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fortunately, for now, at least, the U.S. has experienced a decline in cases thus far this year. Just how big a decline is not clear, although it has been reported that public health officials said they knew all along that Zika cases would decrease. 

Still, three in 10 Americans are worried about the threat of Zika or West Nile viruses from mosquito bites. Yet only one in 10 takes serious precautions, like using insect repellent frequently (2-3 times per week or more), according to a new survey from BullFrog Mosquito Coast Sunscreen + Insect Repellent. 

Use a DEET-free repellent, such as BullFrog Mosquito Coast, which repels mosquitoes for up to eight hours while offering SPF 30 sun protection. One in four surveyed don't use insect repellent at all, while just 22 percent use it occasionally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that anyone traveling to areas with Zika risk take steps to prevent mosquito bites. 


Here are some things you can do to avoid both burn and bite. Ward off itch, discomfort, and more serious threats by avoiding standing water, and dressing in loose long sleeves and pants. Use a DEET-free repellent, such as BullFrog Mosquito Coast, which repels mosquitoes for up to eight hours. The formula is a particularly good option for outdoor enthusiasts. Unlike DEET formulations, there is no need to wash it off when returning indoors. Different from repellent alone, it also offers SPF 30 sun protection, so you can pack light when you’re on the go. You can find Bullfrog products at your local Walmart and other retailers.
