PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN FROM MOSQUITOES NATURALLY THIS SUMMER
Indigenous natural oil helps you to rid your home of pesky flies and mosquitoes
With the hot summer months comes swimming with the kids, long walks and sometimes even camping. But, in addition to all the fun, the increase in flies and mosquitoes becomes a problem as does finding a safe, natural product to protect your little ones from being harassed. Fever-Tree, has launched a natural fly and mosquito repellent liquid and heating unit that is non-toxic and is safe for you to use in your little one’s bedrooms and throughout the house.
Gordon Muller, Fever-Tree brand custodian, says that for centuries LAPA oil has been used to repel mosquitoes. This indigenous South African oil is the natural active ingredient in all Fever-Tree products. The Fever-Tree Fly & Mosquito Repellent Liquid is non-toxic with a herbal fragrance and is therefore safe to be used for the entire family from newborns to moms and dads.
The bottle containing the liquid is fastened into the heating unit, which comes with a 1.2m power cord and can conveniently be placed on any flat surface while plugged into an electric socket. When turned on the liquid set will provide protection for 50 days if used for 8 hours a day, or alternatively 16 days if used for 24 hours a day.
“The Fever-Tree brand is well known for their candles as they create a lovely ambiance while being an effective repellent; however Fever-Tree needed to give consumers an alternative that can be left on unattended while providing total protection,” says Muller.
Fever-Tree product formulations are SABS tested for fly and mosquito repellency, and have proven to be up to 11 times more effective than any other natural based product, including citronella, lemongrass and kakiebos.
The new Fever-Tree Fly & Mosquito Repellent Liquid will be available in Builders Warehouse, Builders Express, Outdoor Warehouse and selected Spar stores nationwide from the 1st November 2015. The recommended retail price for the value pack (2 x liquid refills) is R100 and R150 for the combo pack (2 x liquid refills including the heating unit).
