Studies show that not getting bitten by mosquitoes is the best protection against contracting the Zika virus. BugBand has been on the forefront of testing naturally derived insect repellents for over 15 years. Groundbreaking tests on Geraniol by the University of Florida show how well BugBand works at deterring mosquito bites.

While BugBand wristbands are a great lite-duty and waterproof insect repellent, they should be combined wih the BugBand Pump Spray Lotion or BugBand Towelettes for maximum heavy-duty protection against mosquitoes.

Recent History of Zika Outbreak

"As of mid-2016, a widespread epidemic of Zika fever, caused by the Zika virus, is ongoing in the Americas and the Pacific.[2] The outbreak began in early 2015 in Brazil, then spread to other parts of South and North America; it is also affecting several islands in the Pacific.[3] In January 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the virus was likely to spread throughout most of the Americas by the end of the year.[4]"

"In February 2016, WHO declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern as evidence grew that Zika can cause birth defects as well as neurological problems.[5][6] The virus can be transmitted from an infected pregnant woman to her fetus, then can cause microcephaly and other severe brain anomalies in the infant.[7][8][9] Zika infections in adults can result in Guillain–Barré syndrome.[9] Prior to this outbreak, Zika was considered a mild infection, as most Zika virus infections are asymptomatic, making it difficult to determine precise estimates of the number of cases.[10] In approximately one in five cases, Zika virus infections result in Zika fever, a minor illness that causes symptoms such as fever and a rash.[11][12]"

"The virus is spread mainly by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which is commonly found throughout the tropical and subtropical Americas. It can also be spread by the Aedes albopictus ("Asian tiger") mosquito, which is distributed as far north as the Great Lakes region in North America.[13]"
