It’s time for summer vacation! Families will travel all over the world to enjoy the great outdoors and the sights and sounds of exotic places. However, be prepared to combat insect bites no matter where you go. Bites from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, ants, ticks, chiggers and other pesky insects can ruin a vacation, and might even be deadly. In fact, throughout history more deaths have been caused by mosquito-carrying diseases than any other illnesses.

That’s why we recommend that every household prepare an Insect Bite First Aid Kit to supplement the traditional first aid supplies.

The Insect Bite First Aid Kit should include:

  1. A reliable spray or topical mosquito repellant
  2. Appropriate medications for anyone allergic to bites
  3. Antiseptics
  4. Tweezers
  5. Pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
  6. Calamine lotion or baking soda to relieve itching
  7. Adhesive bandages and wraps
  8. Bite Helper™

In the event of a sting, Bite Helper™ becomes the most important item in your kit. It works to stop the itch caused by insect bites including those from mosquitoes, ants, wasps, bees, ticks and many other pests. Only Bite Helper™ employs proprietary Thermo-Pulse- Technology™ (TPT) to deliver pulsating heat to the site of the insect bite. The pulsations ensure that the heat penetrates its target so it can neutralize the toxic insect saliva and kill bacteria and viruses.

Travel Safely

When making your vacation plans, don’t overlook the potential harm caused by insect bites.

Travel safely. Don’t forget your Insect Bite First Aid Kit featuring Bite Helper™.
