Bean Buzzes Into New Territory
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.
