L.L. Bean, Freeport, ME, partnered with Buzz Off Insect Shield LLC to offer a line of Buzz Off apparel from L.L. Bean that will include men's, women's and children's clothing.


Buzz Off, Greensboro, NC, makes insect-repellent clothing using a patent-pending process. The active ingredient is permethrin, a manmade version of an insect repellent that occurs naturally in chrysanthemums. The repellent works on mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. It is odorless, colorless, doesn't change the feel of the garment and lasts through 25 washings.
