AUSTIN, Texas, March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — With spring weather sweeping the nation, and after months of time spent inside due to the pandemic, Americans are heading outdoors again in increasing numbers. However, the threat of insect bites presents a significant obstacle to Americans’ desire to spend time outside, as found by independent research with 2,000 U.S. adults commissioned by bite away®.1
According to the study, almost half (46%) of Americans said the anticipation of itchiness caused by mosquitoes and other bites prevents them from enjoying outdoor recreational activities as much as they’d like to. With the help of Bite Away, Americans can put the fear of insect bites aside and once again look forward to enjoying the outdoors.
