SALEM, OR (August 2007) Experienced hikers and campers know that insects can ruin a great outdoor experience. Now there’s a natural herbal-based solution to help outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the outdoors.

The all-natural Nutri Shield Insect Repellent is highly effective in repelling mosquitos, flies, fleas, gnats and biting midges (no-see-ums). The DEET-free formula features a garlic base which is known to be a natural insect repellent.  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 convenient Nutri Shield spray can be reapplied as frequently as needed. The seven-ounce sprays retail for $8.99 in leading outdoor retailers, mail order catalogs and on-line.

“We’re making the outdoors more enjoyable for outdoor enthusiasts – 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 North Woods, the jungles of South America, the swamps of Southeast Asia and the bayous of Louisiana.

Nutri Shield also produces an effective Campground and Picnic Solution area spray that can be sprayed directly onto tents, sleeping bags, picnic tables, the ground and surrounding vegetation to dramatically reduce annoying insects. Each application is formulated to last several hours. Equipment and materials will not be harmed by the herbal-based spray. And the environmentally-friendly formula is actually beneficial to plants.

    Awesome stuff. Took it on my trips to Alaska and to Minnesota this past summer. The bugs were brutal everyone else was getting eaten alive except me and my family. Great scents too. The peppermint smells like candy. Really and AMAZING PRODUCT. I also tried it fishing and caught some monster fish!
