Tracey Brown on Tackling Malaria, Lyme Disease, and More with Para'kito [EP 401]

Welcome to episode 401 of The Outdoor Biz Podcast, brought to you this week by The Running Event.

The world is a wonderful place full of exciting adventures. And I don’t let much stop me from getting out and enjoying those adventures. But sometimes . . . the bugs, particularly mosquitos here in the Eastern Sierra . . . can be relentless.

So I use natural repellants from PARA’KITO®. PARA’KITO® wants you to embrace this world, to travel, to explore, and to enjoy its beauty, all naturally free from the nuisance of insects. PARA’KITO® is your caring, natural, effective protection.

And Tracey Brown is with me today to explain how they protect us from the harmful bites from mosquitos, ticks, and other nasty buggers.
