Built-In Insect Protection
Scruffs® have partnered with Insect Shield® to develop a collection of pet bedding and accessories, using Insect Shield® built-in insect protection. The active ingredient is odourless and invisible, effectively protecting dogs against - Mosquitoes, Fleas, Ticks, Flies & Ants.
The active ingredient in Insect Shield®, called Permethrin, is a synthetic variant of an insect-repellent substance that occurs naturally in certain crystanthemum plants. The Permethrin is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibres that it retains effectiveness through the life of the product. This is well beyond the life of most performance fabric finishes. This
technology is used by more than 50 brands worldwide across various industries.
Insect Shield® was born in 1996, when founder Richard Lane led a team of researchers to develop a patent-pending process of bonding a proprietary repellent to apparel. Permethrin is a safe and effective repellent that has been EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered since 1979. The Insect Shield® technology effectively bonds to this repellent, providing a long-lasting protection without the need to re-apply. EPA registration was granted to Insect Shield® after seven years of comprehensive testing. During that time, researchers perfected the formulation, procedures and specialised equipment necessary to produce the repellent apparel.
Scruffs® incorporated the Insect Shield® built-in protection to develop a collection of pet bedding and accessories. These products feature lightweight fabrics which are designed for use in the summer months. The collection consists of four styles of pet beds and three styles of accessories.
These products can be used in conjunction with, and add to the effectiveness of, existing Flea & Tick treatments.
