Norwalk Company Invents Product to Kill Disease Carrying Ticks
Connecticut ranks #5 in the nation for disease-carrying ticks with 36,727 cases reported. New York State ranks second with 69,313 cases reported.
Fuentes has a special hatred for disease-carrying ticks because Lyme Disease ended his running career. He and his three boys were seriously impacted by Lyme disease while they were living in Wilton. His son, Matthew, an award-winning runner at Wilton High eventually contracted Bell's Palsy because of Lyme.
Fuentes's spray doesn't use DEET like most bug sprays. The active ingredient in his Range Ready spray is picaridin which is not toxic like DEET. When sprayed on, Picaridin has been tested and proven that it's far and away the best product in keeping mosquitos and ticks away from the skin.
