Watch out Zika – Avon to the rescue!

Do you hate Mosquitos as much as I do?  Let me help you with Avon Bug Guard!

Everyone hates that feeling of being in bed and hearing that horrendous buzzing near your ear.  You can’t see the predator, but the more you fight to keep your eyelids open the more nervous you become.  When you no longer hear the high pitched buzz, that is when you know it will strike.  If you are not prepared, you and your nerves will be annihilated by the dreaded mosquito!!! The virus affects the sperm of human males for several months.  Zika is believed to cause microcephaly, or abnormally small heads and severe developmental problems, in babies whose mothers are infected with the disease.  That is why it is imperative that all women of childbearing years be protected. There is no specific treatment for the virus, no vaccine and little is known about how it impacts children not born with apparent birth defects. It is also sexually transmitted and can cause an autoimmune disorder that can lead to paralysis called Guillain-Barré. for up to 6 months.  It affects the pregnancies of women of child bearing age causing microcephaly – from the Guardian.com, “

Avon keeps up with the demand for Avon Bug Guard says of Avon Bug Guard from Lindsay Fox of USA Today. The CDC (Center for Disease Control for United States of America – approves of Avon Bug Guard for the Prevention of Mosquito Bites http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/avoid-bug-bites#repellent EXCERPT FROM THE CDC WEBSITE.  Now, the CDC does not endorse any particular product.  They thought it would be helpful for you to have a list of EPA approved products.

Use Insect Repellent

Use EPA-registered insect repellents* that contain at least 20% DEET (products include Cutter Backwoods and Off! Deep Woods) for protection against mosquitoes, ticks, and other bugs. Other repellents protect against mosquitoes but may not be effective against ticks or other bugs:

  • Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin); products include Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and Autan
  • Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or para-menthane-diol (PMD); products include Repel Lemon Eucalyptus
  • IR3535; products include Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition

Researchers have not found any evidence that DEET causes cancer in animals or humans. DEET has been classified by the Unites States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) as “not classifiable as a human carcinogen”, which means that there is not enough evidence to say that it does or does not cause cancer.  This is a quote from the NATIONAL PESTICIDE INFORMATION CENTER
