Except…what about those pesky bugs? Getting bitten by a mosquito or stung by a bee or a wasp can quickly put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable time. And if not treated properly, a bite may lead to an infection, which, in turn, can raise your blood sugars. No fun. If you do get bitten, there’s now a way to fight back quickly: Bug Bite Thing! Bug Bite Thing is a suction tool that painlessly extracts insect saliva and venom from your skin, alleviating itching, stinging and swelling. Unlike sprays, creams and ointments, which only mask the problem, Bug Bite Thing eliminates the problem in just three easy steps. Safe for use on children. Bug Bite Thing can also help remove splinters, too! Don’t be without this tool this summer.
