In 2016 my boys became sick with body pain, swelling knees and ankles. They had no bulls eye rash or typical Lyme flu symptoms. I had no idea they'd even been bitten.
Things got so bad that my oldest couldn't walk for a period of time. I was terrified and still had no diagnosis. About 8 months into the illness both sons were diagnosed and treated for Lyme Arthritis.
My thoughts moving forward, how could we prevent this from happening again and still let our children, and our dog, Bella, continue to enjoy the outdoors? I didn't want to spray DEET on them or any synthetic chemical that could cause health issues in the long run.
After months of research AtlanTick partnered with Acadia University, and together came up with our own safe, effective, natural tick spray. We are currently working to register this highly effective, all-natural tick repellent with Canadian health and pesticide authorities and will let you know as soon as that process is complete.
We are very excited to be part of a positive, environment and health-conscious movement, and we look forward to being able to make this innovative product available to you. We also take great comfort knowing we are doing our best to protect our children so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors, safely.
From that first desire for safer tick bite prevention, Atlantick was born and continues to grow. We are very pleased to have expanded our product line to offer you a variety of tick safety and outdoor enjoyment merchandise, and we look forward to debuting exciting new products as we continue to evolve.
