Been out there picking blackberries or blueberries and got a chigger bite? Or worse, got into a poison oak patch? TriCalm Steroid Free Hydrogel will help soothe that itching quickly. TriCalm’s is unique in that it uses aluminum acetate, a water-soluble salt compound often used in medicine as an astringent or antiseptic, as its active ingredient. My grandson was bitten by some unknown bug one night while he was visiting me, and just one application of Tricalm eased the itching for him.
Tricalm Steroid Free Hydrogel’s unique formula reduces the sensitivity of specific nerves responsible for sending signals of itching, burning or stinging to the brain. The people at Tricalm are so sure that it will stop your itching that they have issued a Itch-Free Guarantee: If TriCalm doesn’t relieve your itch, send us the empty tube and we’ll give you a full refund. It’s as simple as that. You can not beat that! To make a purchase, find a store near you or buy at Amazon.com
Summer time means playing outside, and kids going in and out the door. Eventually, probably soon than later, they will let in some flies, or find a wasp nest somewhere around the house. You can trap those pesky insects without having to chase them down with a flyswatter with TrapStik from Rescue.
The TrapStik For Flies uses new VisiLureTM technology to lure flies with appealing colors and a multi-dimensional pattern. Flies are attracted by the colors and patterns on the TrapStik®, then get stuck to the adhesive surface. It catches common house flies, cluster flies and fruit flies. Once it is full, or the flies are all trapped, just throw it away. I love these because they get rid of the bugs with no poison and no smell.
Find a retailer where you can purchase TrapStiks. They have many different varieties designed to catch various bugs like wasps, yellow jackets, stink bugs, japanese beetles, and more. Suggested retail price is about $5.00.
