Costa Rica, The Land of Adventure
We needed some specific gear to make our Costa Rica adventure more enjoyable and found the following items were a perfect fit for the trip.
Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment
Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment will keep you protected from those annoying insects. Simply spray the insect repellent treatment on clothing, gear, sleeping bags and tents for an effective repellent against mosquitoes, ticks and over 55 other insects for 6 weeks or 6 washes. The odorless layer of protection is nonstaining and is as effective as 100% DEET. A University of Rhode Island study found that people wearing Permethrin-treated shoes and socks were 73.6 times less likely to have a tick bite than those wearing untreated footwear. Protect you and your loved ones on your next outing with Sawyer Permethrin Fabric Treatment.

Sawyer Insect Repellent is a versatile picaridin spray recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as safe and effective for most people. Our testers liked the evaporating smell and how the spray feels once it dries.
Insects and arachnids that bite in self-defense instead of to feed -- such as yellow jackets, bees, wasps, hornets, certain ants or spiders -- cannot be repelled with insect repellents.
The number of bug-borne diseases is increasing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And the number of places they're spreading to is also on the rise.
