Bushman to Be the Official Insect Repellent of Australian Olympians

Bushman to Be the Official Insect Repellent of Australian Olympians

With the recent explosion of the Zika virus in Brazil, many are worried about whether the upcoming Summer Olympics should still be held there. People are questioning the safety of having hundreds of thousands of foreigners traveling to a country currently ravaged by this new virus. As of yet, however, the games are still on, so the smartest move to make right now is to make sure you are prepared for the mosquito-heavy atmosphere.

The Australian Olympic Committee has recently named Bushman as its official insect repellent supplier for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games. I thought this was important to bring up because, hell, if an Olympic team is using this company’s products, maybe the rest of us should take a look at them as well. Well, I looked at the Bushman website, and boy do they have some heavy-duty insect repellents. I must admit, I’m tempted to buy from them myself. One of their most popular products is a seriously heavy-duty insect repellent. It contains 80 percent DEET, and is supposed to last for up to 15 hours. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t found anything that hard core in the U.S.

Do you think the Olympics should still be held in Rio in light of the current Zika virus situation? Would you consider using this Aussie-made insect repellent?
