Protect yourself from Lyme Disease and other tick and mosquito carried infections with convenient, effective BugBeWear® clothing.
An odorless, invisible, factory bonded finish (Insect Shield®) repels ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, no-see-ums, and biting flies.
BugBeWear jeans, tees, sweatshirts, socks, etc. are suitable for most home, yard and garden chores, the activities most often associated with tick-borne diseases. Whether mowing, gardening or relaxing; protection lasts as long as your day outdoors.
"Thanks so much for what you all are doing to protect our kids from these nasty little critters."Kristen, Michigan
“I love your stuff. I work 6 days a week, so any off time I try to spend out in Nature. I am usually photographing. The clothes are great because I can go places and not worry about getting bit by mosquitos and flies. And walk in grass without worry about ticks!” Cindy, New York
"THANK YOU! I went camping last weekend and we were swarmed with mosquitoes. Everyone was bit. One girl had 32 bites and that was with bug spray. I had on my BugBeWear shirt and pants. I was swarmed but had NO bites. I have Lyme and your clothes are letting me do things I love without the constant fear." Jennifer, Montana
"Thank you very much for all of your help! The kids love their "buggy clothes" and so do I!" Colleen, Connecticut
"Thanks for all your help. The socks really worked. I was with other people who got chigger bites but I didn't!" Lee, New York
"I've received an order, and everything looks good. So I am placing another order. Having insect shield clothes makes me feel much more comfortable about going outside. Thank you for making these clothes available." Joan, Pennsylvania
“I’d like to duplicate another order. I never in my life could go out and sit on the patio and drink my coffee without the mosquitos biting me. First time in 45 years that I could sit out without the mosquitos biting me!” Sue, Missouri
"I've been careful to wear my BugBeWear socks and hat every time I worked in the yard this spring and had not picked up a single tick -- until yesterday. That was the first day I skipped my BugBeWear gear and, sure enough, I found a tick happily crawling up my leg. Lesson learned!" Elyse, Virginia
"Sat out in the eve in shirt & hat. No skeeters or black flies hassling me!" Eric, Vermont
"My husband wore the jeans and socks today while weed whacking in "tick city" - by the horse pasture and river. Usually, he is absolutely covered in ticks. Today - none." Marie, Virginia
"I am glad I found your website. You have all the basics for working/playing in the yard at reasonable prices. Ticks and Lyme are a very big problem." Joseph, Maryland
"Customer service was outstanding - quick shipping" Cindy, Massachusetts
Repellent clothing protects skin areas covered. Best protection results from socks, long sleeves and pants. Follow labeled care instructions.
Every BugBeWear garment is labeled two ways. The first is the Insect Shield® hang tag, which displays care instructions as well as EPA information. The second is a permanent label in the interior of the garment. The permanent inside label will help you identify your treated clothing.
