(PRWEB) May 25, 2005
With over 12,000 reported cases of infection and deaths caused by Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus, the United States is preparing for possibly itÂs worst year ever for Mosquitoes.
To help provide some much needed relief, BUG-BANÂ, an all-natural Mosquito Repelling Wristband, launches a national ad campaign today on several US cable television networks and the World Wide Web.
Developed in upstate N.Y. in 1995, Bug Ban is an all natural, non-toxic and child-safe alternative to the majority of insect repellents that contain harmful chemicals including DEET. Not only have Bug Bans become popular for their ease of use and natural ingredients, Bug Bans have been scientifically tested and proven to repel Mosquitoes by one of the worldÂs leading testing laboratories for insecticide products.
The Australian founder of Bug Ban Products, Mr. Joseph Symond, states: ÂItÂs time people started thinking of not only protecting themselves from disease carrying Mosquitoes, but also from the toxic and harmful chemicals used by most other insect repellents. Sometimes the products we use can prove deadlier than the disease! Just look at the horrific side effects of DEET as reported by the United States Library of Medicine! Bug Ban products use non-toxic and all natural ingredients and are the MOST practical, easy to use and inexpensive form of Mosquito repellent on the market today. There are no messy liquids, sprays, oils or candles to deal with. TheyÂre waterproof and sweat-proof and are 100% guaranteed to be effective in helping to repel Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus and other deadly diseases.Â
Bug Bans are currently being used in hotels and resorts such as the Delano Miami Beach and are also under test by the Santa Monica based International Medical Corps and Sir Richard BransonÂs ÂVirgin UniteÂ foundation in an effort to help prevent the spread of Yellow Fever and Malaria in Africa and other 3rd world countries.
For NascarÂ® fans, Bug Ban also holds an exclusive license to produce a range of repellent wristbands with the names and signatures of several top NascarÂ® drivers including Kurt Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Bobby Labonte and Tony Stewart.
Bug Ban products are available only by calling 800-928-8552 or online at http://www.bugbantv.com and will be available through major retailers and supermarkets in 2006.
