Dangerous Ticks & Mosquitoes Time Of Year !

I feel this is so very important to warn others over and over because we are faced every year with the need to use an insect repellant especially for ticks and mosquitoes ! And ask that you use a very good natural choice from nature that has a safe combination of ingredients that WORK ! Ticks & mosquitoes can make us very ill and need to be taken serious.

DEET is NOT a safe choice ! ! !

We need to be protected against these pests and the diseases they carry !
But we also need to make sure we are using something that works that does NOT cause damage to the body in the process !..This is a serious choice we need to make... 

"Dr.Abou-Donia says his 30 years of research on pesticides' brain effects clearly indicate the need for caution among the general public."... A study by Dr. Abou Donia found that DEET caused “neurons to die in regions of the brain that control muscle movement, learning, memory and concentration.” ..."Children in particular are at risk for subtle brain changes caused by chemicals in the environment, because their skin more readily absorbs them, and chemicals more potently affect their developing nervous systems, said Abou-Donia. "

Dr. Abou-Donia said "Never use insect repellents on infants, and be wary of using them on children in general. Never combine insecticides with each other or use them with other medications. Even so simple a drug as an antihistamine could interact with DEET to cause toxic side effects. Don't spray your yard for bugs and then take medications."
