SALEM, OR (July 2007) – Many serious fishermen have avoided using insect repellents which they believe repel fish and damage equipment. Now they can avoid insect bites and actually increase their catch with Nutri Shield Insect Repellent.Nutri Shield Insect Repellent is highly effective in repelling mosquitos, flies, ticks, fleas, gnats and biting midges (no-see-ums) while also attracting fish. In field tests, lures sprayed with Nutri Shield caught at least 30% more fish than lures without Nutri Shield. The all-natural, DEET-free formula includes garlic which is a powerful fish attractant. Fortunately the garlic base is undetected by humans. The patent-pending Nutri Shield formulas include herbs like lemongrass, cinnamon or peppermint to provide a pleasant scent and boost insect repelling power.

Because it’s made from herbs, not synthetic chemicals, the Nutri Shield spray can be reapplied as frequently as needed. The seven-ounce sprays retail for $8.99 in leading outdoor sporting goods retailers, mail order catalogs and on-line.

‘We’re making fishing more enjoyable and productive for serious fishermen ‘ where ever they go,’ said Nutritek President Michael Tinghitella. Nutri Shield has been put to the test and proven highly effective in some of the most insect infested areas in the world including the jungles of South America, the swamps of Southeast Asia and the bayous of Louisiana.
