Logan is a longtime friend of Insect Shield. He’s an avid outdoorsman and cyclist who got Lyme disease on a backpacking trip in 2011, suffering from a number of debilitating symptoms and several misdiagnoses. Even after an intensive treatment protocol, he has never fully recovered. But rather than take Lyme disease lying down, he decided to walk the Appalachian Trail to promote awareness by reaching out to hikers and others at risk of contracting it.
YogaSlackers is an eclectic group known around the world for their slackline abilities, amazing yoga skills, and inspired teaching techniques. They have used some of our best repellent clothing and gear on several of their Epic Adventures, to protect them from insects as they slept in the middle of bug-infested jungles, and on a 49 state road tour across the United States. We like the fact that they put our bug nets and repellent clothing to the test, not just on the ground, but well above the ground!
Spending time outdoors carries risk. One risk is biting insects. Most are just annoying and don’t carry serious diseases. However, some can be downright lethal. This is why it’s so important to dress properly. I have personally field tested Insect Shield in order to stay protected. It works! Within minutes, bugs and their larvae drop right off In fact, during the spring, summer and fall months Insect Shield pants are the only ones that I wear while working in the woods. - Stuart Bevin Owner, Stillwater Forestry LLC

I have been working as a forester in the woods of the Piedmont, NC, since 1979. Bugs have always been a problem and a nuisance. I have gotten a fever twice, and battled numerous occurrences of other biting bugs. For the past four years I have been wearing treated Insect Shield clothing. I can honestly report that my problems with bugs are now nearly non-existent. Insect Shield clothing has made my job much more enjoyable and has probably added a few years to my career! Many thanks to the helpful staff at Insect Shield! - Dave Henderson, Association of Consulting Foresters
