No Frills – More Kills
January 10, 2005

W. F. Young, Inc. presents a hot new entry into the insecticide and repellent market – Absorbine Bug "bug_block_insecticide__repellent_160"Block. Bug Block out-performs competing brands with a superior formulation containing more of the two most important active ingredients – Pyrethrins and Permethrin – essential for rapid knock-down and kill.

Bug Block, in the unique purple bottle, kills and repels more than 70 species of pests. Not only is it effective on biting flies, gnats, ticks and chiggers, but it works on hard-to-kill health threats such as scorpions, Black Widow spiders, cockroaches, and mosquitoes. This includes the Culex species of mosquito, which has been known to transmit the West Nile Virus. Bug Block is approved for use on the horse and everywhere the horse will encounter flies. It can be used in the stall and around the barn. It is also safe to use on dogs and puppies over 12 weeks of age.

A special introductory offer makes Bug Block a great value. Absorbine is offering a mail-in manufacturer’s rebate savings of $3.00 off each quart and $5.00 off each gallon.

Field tests have proven that Bug Block’s effectiveness lasts for 7-14 days after the initial treatment period. It is not necessary to “repeat daily,” as is required with some insecticides. Bug Block does not contain oily petroleum distillates to irritate the skin or attract dirt and dust to the coat.

Absorbine products are available nationwide in tack shops, farm supply stores, and catalogs. For a dealer near you or for more information, visit
