Focus on the Right Kind of Buzz with Bug-Repelling Wearables, Tabletop Accessories and Zappers

The Companion Group is proud to introduce Not In My Backyard®, a line of all-natural products that help ensure a pleasant and safe outdoor experience for the entire family. The NIMBY line includes wristbands, clips, zappers, candles, and diffusers. Many of the products use bug-repelling inserts made of 100% essential oils, including geraniol, eucalyptus, and lemongrass. Not In My Backyard® is safe and effective for kids and adults.

The Companion Group CEO Chuck Adams stated,

Not In My Backyard® products are made without harsh chemicals and sticky sprays. We use a proprietary combination of essential oils to keep bugs away from you and your family,

As experts in outdoor products for over thirty years, The Companion Group is expanding its reach to repel any flying insects that might spoil the outdoor experience. By adding Not In My Backyard® to it’s family of brands, they bring their experience in all things outdoors – including cooking, entertaining, and every kind of relaxing – to the mosquito-repelling category. In so doing, they enhance every experience already provided to their customers. The Companion Group’s commitment to innovative but responsible products ensures that the NIMBY line is effective, safe, and perfect for anyone venturing outside.

With more Americans wanting to spend time outdoors in 2017, products like those in the Not In My Backyard® line are growing more essential. Not In My Backyard® wearables such as fabric and silicone wristbands can be used for camping, hiking, picnics, sporting events, fishing, hunting, walking the dog, relaxing in the back yard, or sleeping under the stars. The slow-release insert refills triple the time the NIMBY accessories can effectively repel mosquitoes and other flying insects. Each insert gradually releases geraniol, geranium, peppermint, and citronella oils for up to fifteen days of protection.

The tabletop products create a zone free from bothersome bugs, promoting relaxation and taking in the great outdoors from a comfortable (and stationary) seat. Perfect for patios, backyard cookouts, and poolside lounging. For those who want to actively go after insects, the Travel Handheld Bug Zapper kills insects on contact with a low-voltage electric current when they touch the surface of the “net.”

The Not In My Backyard® line will be available through major trade channels in spring of 2017.
