It just got easier to keep your kids free from insect bites this summer. One Step Ahead has taken a revolutionary step with a new line of children’s apparel and gear called Bug Smarties. These adorable clothes and accessories will keep your kids comfortable and give you the peace of mind that your children are safe from bugs.


How does Bug Smarties do this?

These are Insect Shield Repellent products, which are designed to provide insect protection. Insect Shield apparel and gear products combine the patent-pending Insect Shield process with a proprietary formulation of the insect repellent permethrin—resulting in effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of a garment. This is absolutely safe and EPA registered.


Among the stylish clothing are light weight girls’ tunic tops and even headbands that protect against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges. The repellent is bonded to the fabric fibers and lasts through 70 washes. Also available are colorful hoodies, crew neck shirts, leggings and roll up pants for boys. All clothing are great for outdoor play and active wear. They are made of soft and easy to move in fabrics that your kids will be comfortable in, and you will love that the Insect Shield repellent apparel can be bleached, starched, pressed, etc., without effect on the repellent quality. It’s easy to care for clothing, just like any other everyday play outfits that you have for your children. The only difference is that these clothes will keep the bugs away!
