The company that licenses insect-repellent technology to 30 different outdoor clothing brands has launched its own line of clothing — including socks, pants, shirts, and hats — called Insect Repellent Work Wear. According to the company, workers fully clad in its products will be protected against everything from ticks to flies and mosquitoes “unless they’re someplace really bug-infested like the Everglades,” in which case a bit of DEET on the face may be in order. Tee shirts range in price from $16 to $24, and cargo pants cost about $60.
