Ben’s® Ramps up Tick Protection with Ben’s® Tick Repellent

5/19/2020


The tick-specific formula offers up to 12 hours of maximum protection against tick-borne diseases

Ben’s®, maker of long-lasting insect repellents, introduces a new solution for maximum protection against ticks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are about 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease in the United States each year, most of them unreported. Ben’s Tick Repellent 6oz Eco-Spray seeks to battle this statistic with a maximum strength Picaridin formula that lasts for 12 hours. 


“We developed and tested Ben’s Tick in the harshest tick and insect conditions here in New Hampshire,” says Katie Jones, brand manager for Ben’s. “With our new tick-specific repellent, we can give families peace of mind when spending time outdoors thanks to a formula that is tough on ticks without being tough on you.”

Ben’s Tick Repellent 6oz Eco-Spray is an EPA-registered solution with CDC-recommended Picaridin for repelling disease-carrying ticks. The field-tested tick spray features a 20% Picaridin formula designed to repel ticks that may carry Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and other tick-borne diseases. The non-greasy formula is family-friendly and won’t harm clothing, gear or other synthetic materials. The Eco-Spray delivery system is designed to provide consistent coverage when applying the tick repellent.

“Ben’s is all about providing ultimate protection from ticks and biting insects so that consumers can enjoy nature safely,” says Garrett Cox, senior VP of marketing at Tender Corporation, the New Hampshire-based parent company. “With Ben’s Tick Repellent, we’re excited to complement the rest of the Ben’s product offerings with a powerful solution against the most common kinds of tick-borne diseases.”

Ben’s Tick Repellent 6oz Eco-Spray (MSRP $9.49) is available for purchase on Amazon.com and select retailers nationwide.
