Put Your Lymeez On!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lyme, NHLymeez LLC announces a new innovation in tick bite prevention. Lymeez 3D Air Mesh Tick Gaiters have been tested to slow adult deer ticks by 48X in comparison testing over common pant fabrics. A slower climb means longer exposure to the long-lasting repellent on the gaitersa 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, respectivelyvery 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 wrapno 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, huntingreally 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).

Permethrina 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 DEETespecially 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!
