Top Tips for Avoiding Sandfly Bites

Your best defense is a good offense

#howNOTtodress is one of our best resources.

Timing is everything. Sandflies love dusk just as much as you do. But instead of unwinding from a long day of work, and hopefully some play, they are gearing up for a meal. So apply Goodbye Sandfly, or reapply if it has been more than a few hours.

Don't stop, keep on moving on. Sandflies prefer nonmoving targets. If you are out talking to people at a BBQ, sitting with a drink by the beach, or just taking a break on a hike be sure to cover up with clothes and a spritz of Sandfly. I make sure that I am always prepared with both at my outside table when I meet up with friends for a coffee and catch up.

Wishing you good health in our beautiful, sometimes buggy world.

With respect,

I could be accused of being fringe. Sun, water, and air call to me to care, and I reflect my love as clearly as I can. Since that's what you do too, then we can be fringe together.

My children teach me to expand regardless of whether it's comfortable. My husband and business partner John is my blessing, for everything that means. Goodbye is a pathway for reflecting what I care about, our vital need to know and celebrate our connection to nature and to each other.
