It is very apparent after years of swatting and swearing, we cannot beat 'em...so we might as well join 'em. Become one with the bug!
The search was on for the ultimate bug jacket and I found 3 possible sources.
The first company had fabulous deals...$14.99 for a full hooded jacket. One problem, they don't stock them! Okay, strike 1.
The second company had them for $19.99, but honestly the mesh/screen used in the hood part was way too dark. I could just see our little people bumping into things or tripping, the jackets would be off in a flash, they'd be bitten from head to toe, then they'd swell up like a carnival balloon, hospital visits would follow....well you get the picture.
Then I found this:
Look at this happy family, having the time of their lives, laughing at the bugs! Now that's what I'm looking for. Oh they were a little more expensive at Lee Valley, but I did get a surprise when I ordered them...the kids' jackets come with a set of leggings. Neat!
Now I can't wait for spring....bugs and all.
