Insect Shield technology represents a different and more environmentally responsible addition to personal insect protection. Insect Shield puts just enough bug protection where it is needed – on the clothing you wear and the gear you use. Users of Insect Shield treated products report an overall reduction in use of both pesticides and repellents.
Our insect repellent clothing repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, ants and midges (no-see-ums) with just a small amount of our long lasting active ingredient – permethrin.
The permethrin is so tightly bound to the fabric fibers so that it lasts throughout the expected life of the product, as confirmed by independent laboratory tests. Similar to the dye in colorfast clothing lasts through many wears and washings, the permethrin is designed to stay in the garment.
The Insect Shield process utilizes a proprietary system designed for no loss of active ingredient into the environment or waste water management. Insect Shield manufacturing processes and procedures are designed to be clean, efficient and contained. Our facilities support and promote waste recycling and energy efficiency.
The future of insect protection lies in more intelligent application of technology. Insect Shield is committed to offering products that have a positive impact on people’s comfort while considering the long-term well-being of our planet.
