Not only did Bug Bam work, it alleviated some of our main concerns regarding the insect issue, the prevalence of Malaria and the evening inundation of insects into our one-man tents, BUT we were the envy of all the other trekkers and indeed our trek leaders who had fought under the trying circumstances of Vietnam.

Bug Bam has released a range of all natural, DEET free, 100% recyclable repellents that don't require the application of any liquids or harmful chemicals. A portion of online sales benefit The Global Fund to fight Malaria.
The makers of Bug Bam realize that most people were raised on the spray. It has been as much a part of summer as baseball, barbecues and bathing suits, and they bet that right now, if consumers caught the scent, the nostalgia would be overwhelming, bringing back memories of a lake house, a birthday, a pool party ... or the time they got eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Spray users have had to put up with slippery hands, sticky sweat and stinging eyes, and they still got bit. In the past, when going outside there were only two options: the spray or nothing. Most of the time, wearers couldn't tell the difference. Now a third option has arrived: Bug Bam.
Bug Bam is a safe, non-toxic, non-irritant (and fashionable) wristband that uses an all-natural, proprietary formula that has been scientifically tested and proven to repel mosquitoes, and also works against fleas, ticks, gnats, ants and sandflies. Think of it as a 'Livestrong' band with a purpose.
Made with EPA/FDA approved ingredients, Bug Bam wristbands are kid-safe and have proven themselves against more traditional insect sprays that employ the potentially harmful chemical Diethyltoluamide (DEET). A single wristband is effective up to 4 feet away from the wearer and when placed in the re-sealable package between use, it can last up to 100 hours. Bug Bam wristbands are also waterproof, sweat-proof and less expensive than the sprays traditionally used. In fact, the Australian inventor, Joseph Symond, states; "the wristbands are so successful at keeping mosquitoes away the U.S. Navy in Cuba uses them along with Olympic athletes, billionaire tycoons, Hollywood celebrities and world famous hotels and resorts".
Two time Olympic Heptathlete Jane Flemming - Australia's 'Golden Girl' - wore Bug Bam wristbands during a recent trip to the Mosquito infested Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea and claims; "Not only did Bug Bam work, it alleviated some of our main concerns regarding the insect issue, the prevalence of Malaria and the evening inundation of insects into our one-man tents, BUT we were the envy of all the other trekkers and indeed our trek leaders who had fought under the trying circumstances of Vietnam."
With the Harvard School of Public Medicine reporting that up to 50% of the US population is avoiding the use of DEET based products, Bug Bam is a timely, appealing and effective alternative.
