Protecting Babies from Insect Bites

Updated on December 5, 2010

If you have a baby or toddler, nothing works better than a SansBug tent to keep them free from insect bites. Babies under two months old are particularly susceptible to bites from mosquitoes, black flies, fleas, bees and other insects. At that age, babies cannot be treated with insect repellents containing DEET because their skin is too sensitive.

The special netting on the SansBug tent allows you to take your baby outside and prevents insects (both large and small) from getting close enough to bite. In fact, anyone from baby to adult can find a SansBug tent just the right size (1 to 3 person) to protect them from flying and crawling insects.

Don’t worry about mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are the most dangerous of the insects and although most babies do not suffer adverse reactions from bites, mosquitoes can spread deadly diseases. While the United States is free of malaria (except for an occasional case), in other parts of the world, malaria is still killing millions of children and adults every year. In addition to malaria, such diseases as West Nile Virus, encephalitis, dengue, and meningitis are spread by mosquitoes.

The SansBug tent can protect you and your infant from mosquitoes no matter where you are in the world. You don’t have to worry about finding poles or attaching netting to other objects, such as trees or buildings. Simply pull a strap and out pops a secure enclosure to keep out all flying and crawling insects.

Ultimate protection for babies to adults with SansBug

Take your baby outside without worry. You can even enjoy reading a book or communing with nature inside the tent while baby sleeps. If you are traveling on vacation in the U.S. or abroad, the SansBug tent is an ideal alternative to dangerous chemical sprays to deter insects. It’s like having your own little portable room. It is the perfect protection from any type of unsanitary conditions.

The SansBug tent is not only great for babies, kids of every age love to play or rest inside. Now you don’t have to worry about bug protection or using harmful chemicals to repel them. You can take the portable SansBug tent anywhere. The 1-person tent even fits in airplane overhead bins.

You need to do everything you can to protect your baby from disease. With a SansBug tent you won’t have to worry about West Nile Virus or any other infectious disease spread by mosquitoes. The SansBug tent is not only a fun piece of outdoor gear, it can be a life-saver.
