Each ecosystem has its own variety of biting insects. As you know, covering your body with long sleeves and pants will help. Bella will deter biting and flying insects naturally. If you walk through water or wetlands, reapply this salve. Should last 3-4 hours otherwise.
Directions for use: These salves soften with the heat of your body, so swipe clean fingers through salve, rub hands together and apply before, during and/or after entering insect territory. For best results, reapply as needed to arms, legs, belly, back, face, feet, and lightly to hair. Avoid eyes. Safe for children and pets. Chemical-free.
