Getting outside has tons of benefits for your physical and mental health, but spending more time outside can also increase your risk for tick-borne diseases. Diseases caused by ticks, including Lyme disease, have been on the rise in the United States, more than doubling in the ten years between 2006 to 2016. Mozzie gear is an effective solution. It creates a natural barrier between your skin and the tick. The ribbed bands at the wrists, waistband, and ankles keep ticks from crawling inside the netting. The white Mozzie gear makes the ticks easy to see on the material so you can brush them off as well.
