How long does the Insect Resistant Technology last?


The Insect Shield Technology is EPA-registered to last through 70 launderings, the expected lifetime of a garment. This is also well beyond the life of most performance fabric finishes commonly used in the technical-apparel industry.

Stored (Unused)

Insect Shield products also have a long shelf life. An Insect Shield treated garments stored for ten years have shown no loss of resistant effectiveness.

How much protection is provided?

The resistance is driven by the size of the garment. You may need to adjust the amount of Biteback clothing you wear, depending on the number of biting insects that are present. Topical repellent can be used for exposed skin, if desired, and is especially recommended for heavily infested locations.

How do I care for the Product?

All Products SHOULD NOT be dry-cleaned. Dry cleaning removes some of the active ingredient, which reduces the insect resistant quality of the apparel.

In addition to above, each product may carry different wash care instructions depending on the fabric used. We recommend to always read the care label on each individual item.

    "Naturally a product like this required some rigorous testing on the farm so I took the shirt out for a jaunt up to the lakes. Where I am usually committed to smothering myself with dimp and other anti mosquito agents, which acts as a mere hindrance to these voracious blood suckers, the shirt repelle..."  more
