Put Your Lymeez On!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lyme, NH—Lymeez LLC announces a new innovation in tick bite prevention. Lymeez® 3D Air Mesh Tick Gaiters have been tested to slow adult deer ticks by 4–8X in comparison testing over common pant fabrics. A slower climb means longer exposure to the long-lasting repellent on the gaiters—a force-multiplier in repellent exposure.

Ticks don't fly or jump. Ticks instinctively climb upwards from the ground and brush. Most ticks climb onto the feet and lower legs, attracted by movement, heat and carbon dioxide.

Lymeez® tick gaiters are purpose-built™ to intercept ticks and poison them on their climb. Adult and nymphal deer ticks, which carry Lyme disease and other pathogens are as small as a sesame seed and a poppy seed, respectively—very easy to miss.

Tick bite prevention only works when it is a regular habit. Lymeez® 3D Air Mesh Tick Gaiters, are an easy on/off leg wrap—no special wardrobe planning is needed. Put them on when walking onto the golf course, before walking the dog, mowing the lawn, hiking, bird watching, gardening, hunting—really any outdoor activity where there is a danger of ticks.

Tick-borne illnesses are on the rise. According to the CDC there has been a dramatic increase in the incidence and geographic range of Lyme Disease infections across the US, now an estimated 244,000-444,000 infections per year, with cases reported in all 50 states.

Lymeez® Tick Gaiters with Active Release™ repellency, employ "intelligent textile technology," infusing every fiber of the gaiters with odorless microencapsulated permethrin. Regular activity causes some of the millions of microcapsules to burst, gradually releasing the ixodicide (tick repellent).

Permethrin—a manmade version of pyrethrum which is derived from the chrysanthemum flower— is an effective tick repellent. As the CDC says, “products containing permethrin kill ticks." Military uniforms worldwide have used this technology for decades. Permethrin is vastly less absorbable by the skin than DEET—especially in micro-encapsulated form, and with Lymeez® Tick Gaiters repellent is near the skin, not on it.

Lymeez® 3D Air Mesh Tick Gaiters are durable and attractive. Repellency lasts through 50 warm water washes. One size fits all, 12 years through Adult. Lymeez® gaiters are sewn and treated in the USA and available in Black or Olive Green.

While Lymeez LLC, nor any company, can guarantee complete prevention of tick bites, Lymeez® offer excellent practical protection. Play more, worry less!
